Happy New Year- Nautical Style- 2014

new year eve,new years day,nautical,ship,holidayHappy New Years to all my friends and followers. This time of year is a good time to reflect back over the past year. We had a great year especially November and December. We have been in business now since 2005. The past 8 years have flown by. We love making our product and it’s great to be able to do something that you truly enjoy. We expect to be in business for a long time. I had fun putting together the picture above!

I thought I would also show you below something that I just learned.  Unlike civil clock bells, the strikes of the bell do not accord to the number of the hour. Instead, there are eight bells, one for each half-hour of a four-hour watch.

At midnight on New Year’s Eve sixteen bells would be struck – eight bells for the old year and eight bells for the new.

Below is a picture from Wikipedia showing the bell.
