How old is the oldest pirate ship?

When we think of pirates, we think of Long John Silver. Piracy (the verb) has been around for thousands of years. Vikings did it too. Around 1800 the US Navy took the lead at stopping piracy on the high seas, so other than a few crooks, all that is left is the lore.

Probably one day younger than the oldest ship. Think about it. Theives are older than hookers.

There were already pirates in Antiquity.

After December 7 1941 how many men from which ships were rescued from being entombed in sunken ships?

32 men were rescued from the Oklahoma over the course of 36 hours. 2 hospital corpmen were pulled out of the California.

I will continue to look but this is what I could find. I do know that 6 were able to swim out of a porthole in the Oklahoma and another swam out from below decks so the cutting crews knew where to cut to save others. I do not know if they are included in the 32 or not.

How many days did it take the mayflower ship to cross the Atlantic ocean?

In history, you will always find contradicting information. However, MayflowerHistory.com is the source of this answer: After many complications, the Pilgrims departed on September 6, 1620. They sighted land (Cape Cod) on November 9, 1620. Therefore, it took the Mayflower about 66 days to cross the Atlantic Ocean. For some perspective on this time scale, one of my ancestors sailed from Antwerp Belgium to Port of Quebec, Canada in only 11 days in 1910.

What is the White Ship?

The White Ship was a vessel which sank near the Coast of Normandy, in Northern France on 25 November 1120. It is important in English history because one of those drowned was William, the oldest son of King Henry I. William would have become the next king if he had survived. King Henry had intended his daughter, Matilda (also known as Maud) to succeed him but after his death in December 1135 she was not a popular choice because of her gender and the fact that her husband was Geoffrey V, Count of Anjou - an enemy of the Norman Barons. Henry's nephew, Stephen of Blois laid claim to the throne and there followed a nineteen year civil war between supporters of King Stephen and supporters of Matilda, known as The Anarchy. This was resolved by the Treaty of Wallingford in 1153 whereby Stephen agreed that Matilda's son Henry would succeed him. Stephen was the last Norman king and, when he died on 25 October 1154 Henry became King Henry II, the first Plantagenet King.

What English seaport did the Mayflower sail from?

The Mayflower originally departed from the English port of Southampton in August 1620, accompanied by a smaller vessel the Speedwell. Because the Speedwell was leaking, the ships were forced to return first to Dartmouth and then to Plymouth.

The Mayflower finally set sail alone from Plymouth, England, in September 1620 for the 66-day voyage to the American site that the Puritan settlers also named Plymouth.
