I was looking at my calendar and seen FRI DEC 19 1620 Pilgrim landing and did a Google search and happened upon a good little article I thought I would share.

Only one question it says

"On her first 300 nautical miles, the Speedwell developed engine trouble twice. The first breakdown required it to dock at Dartmouth for repairs, but the second forced it to sail back to Southampton, where it was abandoned. "

Thought the only motors boats had back in 1620 would be sails ?? Are we talking about Steam power here?
