New Information about Cogs and Medieval Naval Logistics from an Eyewitness Crusade Chronicle, De intinere navali

Some 470 Crusaders are putting the final touches on two years of preparation, now entrusting their lives to these cogs – made of oak and iron, with strong ropes spun of local moss – tonight setting sail for England, en route to fulfil their sacred vows in the Holy Land.
