Sir William Monson's Naval Tracts, Vol. 3283 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Sir William Monson's Naval Tracts, Vol. 3283 Page 48, line 20. Mr. Morton Nance has suggested that if fore mast be read instead of main mast the description of the position of the manger makes good sense because in early Ships it was sometimes abaft the fore mast. Of that fact I was ignorant. This subject of the position of the manger has been discussed by Mr. Nance in the M ariner's Mirror, iii. P. 223. The statement in the footnote that the manger was always on the forecastle is too general; it depended on the Size of the Ship and the position of the hawses, and was often below, on the capstan deck, in two and three-decked vessels.
