Galleons often had a crew of 100,...
The galleon was a large armed ship up to 1,000 tons. They were often classified as one, two, three, or four deckers and rigged with square and lanteen sails notably with top sails. Galleons often had a crew of 100, and 15 to 30 gunners and 50 to 100 passengers as well as provisions and cargo. These ships were the pride of their day. If you like ships and sea adventure stories, check out my books from the "Billy Buckins" series. "The Voyage of Billy Buckins" is online at www.TheVoyageOfBillyBuckins.com and my second book from the series will be online later this year. Have a good read!
