Mr Monkey aboard the Golden Hinde, 15th May

"It's small but it does have a door"

Mr Monkey on the half deck of the Golden Hinde Mr Monkey looking around the captain's cabin

Mr Monkey swarmed up the steps to the half deck in the stern. Drake would have steered the ship with a whipstaff (a long pole), but the replica uses a wheel for safety's sake. Mr Monkey couldn't go up onto the poop deck, where Drake sat painting nearby seashores, because there wasn't a ladder. So he went into the captain's cabin, the only private space aboard the ship, and inspected Drake's navigational equipment and painting of the queen.
