Aren't rudders in the stern?


What does the term "rudder amidship" mean ?

Means to put the rudder on the center line; no rudder angle. As a rule, this order is merely "RUDDER AMIDSHIPS!"

The Island of Lundy in England's Bristol Channel, has been in the possession of such diverse owners as the Knights Templars and pirates from various nations. It was once owned by one William Hudson Heaven who attempted to make the island independent from the UK. Hudson Heaven's quest ultimately failed, but lead to the Island becoming known as the Kingdom of Heaven.

Normally my Daughter wouldn't attempt such shananigans while I was awake, but ... I almost took your meaning to be the tongue of the Andian highlanders. Regardless, I will wear a hat to protect my hair.

Next time someone tells you it's more important to make memories in your life rather than money, tell them this:

"Tell that to a millionaire with Alzheimer's or dementia."

Here is a few tidbits of tasty trivia for you...

I can read your mind. Pick any number between one and ten, double it then add six, halve it, then subtract the number you picked...your answer is 3.

When guessing a coin toss, go for heads because there is a slightly better chance of winning because the heads side of the coin is heavier than the tails side.

Hamburgers don't come from Hamburg in Germany, only the Hamburg steak which Americans turned into the hamburger, The French Fry and spaghetti and meatballs are also American inventions.

Certain species of mayfly lives for two hours, their sole purpose is to breed, speaking of breeds certain species of fish will change sex during their lifetime, so the sequel to Finding Nemo would be Finding Norma.

I'll leave with a nerd joke; what do you call two crows sitting on a tree branch? attempted murder.

Kennedy was killed for printing money through congress and without the Federal reserve among other things. He resisted starting a war with Russia.

NYC pizza is great because of the water. We have great h20 here thanks to the Adirondack mountains.

Hot dog venders will sell more flavorful dogs if they reuse the water from the day before.

Napoleon wasnt short. The standard measurement was different back then between France and the UK. Also there were active campaigns to insult and mock him so this is disinfo we brought into history class.

Also, Napoleon was a great person who grew up poor and had a novel idea of making peasants literate as well as granting certain unalienable rights to the lower classes. The first deplorable.

The English crown is the head of our western worlds elite. MANY powerful people dont even know this.

The first microwaves were more powerful and could cook in seconds what ours now cook in minutes.

Homosapiens were a tribute culture for neanderthal wherever we coexisted because they were stronger and probably as smart as us, just with thousands of years of more experience. Their descendants through a divergent branch of humanity may have been the incarnate gods we hear about in the earliest mythologies.

That is why our "gods" wanted tribute. We always gave them our stuff.

Anti gravity may help us move around like UFOs but for interstellar travel it would be useless.

UFOs are living beings that build merkabas imbued with abilities they have.

Aliens and UFOs are interdimentional and from non linear time /space. They may be from the future AND the past.

Our solar system is traveling through our galaxy while our galaxy is traveling through the universe. Everything is never in the same place it was and will never be in the same place in space ever again.

The west coast has better weed than Amsterdam.

Our continents grow apart by inches every year towards the pacific ocean and our moon gets farther away by a similar measure yearly as well.

There were a couple large land masses like Pangea. Our planets crust is not the same crust that existed back then since it renews itself constantly.

Self-proclaimed Devonshire prophetess Johanna Southcott (Southcote) believed herself to be the "Woman Of The Apocalypse" of Revelations. Her writings later formed the basis for The Panacea Society which taught that the Biblical Garden Of Eden was in Bedford England.

The Society purchased a house in the town for the returned messiah to live in. The house still stands and is the site of the Panacea Society Museum.

Steering boards proceeded rudders, were outboard on the right side of ship, preventing docking on that side. The stern is the whole back of the ship, midship is the centerline.

Placing rudder midships is placing the rudder straight with the centerline (or midship) to steer straight, instead of to port or starboard.
