Happy New Year- Nautical Style- 2014
Happy 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.

My wish to all my friends and followers that 2014 will be a great year for you.
