    I have been studying the dimensions of English East India Company vessels in Anthony Farrington’s Catalogue of East India Company Ships’ Journals and Logs, 1600-1834, British Library, London 1999,and am wondering why the dimensions of the port cells range from approximately 17 to 32 feet.

    What exactly is meant by “Port-Cell”? Port-sills, forming the top and bottom of gunports would have been about three feet long, so something else must be meant.
