Ships, Sailors, And Navigation - Boats on Egypt's Nile The Nile provided 750 miles of unobstructed waterway with a current that carried boats from Aswan and the First Cataract to its mouth and prevailing north winds that brought those boats under Sail back again. A square Sail was set well forward above the reed platform that served its passengers and cargo. Smaller vessels were poled, paddled, or rowed, with some also equipped with a Sail. A two-legged forward mast with a tall, narrow rectangular Sail had been replaced by a low, wide Sail on a pole mast amidships. The existence of a mast and use of Sails was possible, though firm evidence of Sailing boats comes much later. As a result, early light craft propelled by paddles or oars gradually evolved into wooden craft with Sail as well as oars. Square-ended, these boats carried a single Sail of cloth or reed matting with the largest powered by eleven oarsmen. Though the engravings obviously are stylized, the slender rounded hull, in some cases almost crescent-shaped, supported a pole mast with stays fore and aft and a high square Sail. tomb depicts a Syrian fleet of merchant ships with spoon-shaped hulls, with straight stempost, deck beams through the sides, and a broad square Sail very much like Egyptian vessels of the period. ) The representation of the Sailors (their beards, profile, and clothing) clearly suggests their Syrian origin. The mast with an adjustable Sail was crowned with a lookout. A single square Sail on a mast amidships could be raised and lowered. Sails of sewn patches of woven linen were controlled with lines of twisted papyrus and leather. ...
The rigging for most war galleys during this period was standard: a single square Sail amidships with a retractable mast. Later, as the volume of cargo grew, larger seaworthy Sailing ships came into use. The merchantman was only slightly modified from the warship design to include a roomier and stronger hull and a sturdier mast for a bigger Sail. Ultimately, however, the Sailing ship with a rounded hull and a single square Sail became the primary cargo ship from Phoenicia to Italy. ...
The ancient Mediterranean Sailor knew only the side rudder, an oversized oar pivoted in a slanting position near the stern. A series of ropes with individual functions fitted the mast and Sail. ...
The ideal Sailing season in the Mediterranean was from May 27 to September 14 with an extension to outside limits from March 10 to November 10. As a result, Sailing during the late fall and winter was reduced to bare essentials such as the carrying of vital dispatches, the transport of essential supplies, and urgent military movement. Under way the “sailing master” was usually in command. The Sailors generally wore limited or no clothing when aboard ship and wore a tunic but no sandals when ashore. ...
A wide variety of smaller craft, usually driven by oars and a small auxiliary Sail, were prevalent in every harbor to provide various services

The ship in which Paul was Sailing had four anchors on board. The Sailors on this occasion anchored by the stern. ( Acts 27:29 ) ...
Masts, Sails, ropes and yards . Its great feature was one large mast, with one large square Sail fastened to a yard of great length. Not that there were never more masts than one, or more Sails than one on the same mast, in an ancient merchantman; but these were repetitions, so to speak, of the same general unit of rig. ...
Rate of Sailing . With a fair wind an ancient ship would Sail fully seven knots an hour. ...
Sailing before the wind. The superior rig and build, however, of modern ships enable them to Sail nearer to the wind than was the case in classical times. A modern ship, if the weather is not very boisterous, will Sail within six points of the wind
Ships And Boats - Solomon had also a navy of ships navigated by Phœnician Sailors. It is not possible to say at what time Sails were first introduced. We find them, or more correctly the Sail, in the one great Sail mentioned in Ezekiel 27:7 in addition to the oars. In Isaiah 33:23 the Sail only is mentioned. In Isaiah 33:21 the ‘ galley with oars ’ is mentioned distinctively, and in contrast to the ‘ gallant ship ,’ which probably means the larger vessel provided with a Sail. Ezekiel’s famous comparison of Tyre to a ship in Isaiah 27:4-11 gives a fair general idea of the different parts of a ship of that period, though some of them the deck-planks of ivory, the Sail of fine bordered linen, the awnings of blue and purple are evidently idealized. It was impelled only by Sail , the only oars mentioned being the paddles used as rudders , which were braced up, probably in order to allow the ship to be more easily anchored at the stern ( Acts 27:29 ; Acts 27:40 ). In addition to the mainsail , the vessel had a foresail ( artemôn ), which was used for the same purpose, as more easily adapted for altering the ship’s course ( Acts 27:40 ). Though ships had to depend mainly on one great square Sail, by bracing this they were enabled to Sail within seven points of the wind. As, however, the vessel could not safely carry the mainsail, or even the yard-arm, these were first lowered on deck, and then the vessel must have been heaved to and been carried along and steadied by a small storm-sail of some kind. He justly observes that the chief reason why Sailing in the winter was dangerous ( Acts 27:9 , Acts 28:11 ) was not so much the storms, as the constant obscuring of the heavens, by which, before the discovery of the compass, mariners had chiefly to direct their course. Paul Sailed were ships of Alexandria engaged in the wheat trade with Italy (Acts 27:6 ; Acts 27:38 , Acts 28:11 ; Acts 28:13 ; Puteoli was the great emporium of wheat), is especially interesting, as we happen to know more about them than any other ancient class of ship. The ships had one huge square Sail attached to an upright mast about the centre of the vessel, with a very long yard-arm. There was also a second small mast, set diagonally near the bow, and looking not unlike a modern bowsprit, which carried the foresail. On the principal mast there was also sometimes a small triangular topsail

5: ἐκπετάννυμι (Strong's #1600 — Verb — ekpetannumi — ek-pet-an'-noo-mee ) "to spread out" (as a Sail), is rendered "did I spread out" in Romans 10:21 , RV (AV, "I have stretched forth")
Tarshish - Some think there was a Tarshish in the East, on the Indian coast, seeing that "ships of Tarshish" Sailed from Eziongeber, on the Red Sea (1 Kings 9:26 ; 22:48 ; 2 Chronicles 9:21 ). It was founded by a Carthaginian colony, and was the farthest western harbour of Tyrian Sailors. It was to this port Jonah's ship was about to Sail from Joppa. "Ships of Tarshish" is an expression sometimes denoting simply ships intended for a long voyage (Isaiah 23:1,14 ), ships of a large size (sea-going ships), whatever might be the port to which they Sailed

Ship - , illustrates the rate of Sailing. ...
Anchoring by the stern, the ancients were prepared to anchor in the gale such as Paul encountered; and Purdy (Sailing Directions, 180) says that the holding ground at Malta where Paul was wrecked is quite good enough to have secured the anchors and ship in spite of the severe night. In Acts 27:40, for "mainsail" translated "foresail," which was needed to put the ship about and to run it aground. Vessels were propelled by oars as well as by Sails (Ezekiel 27:29; Isaiah 33:21; Jonah 1:13). Of the 32 parts or points of the compass card a modern ship will Sail within six points of the wind. The clumsier ancient ship probably could Sail within seven points. In the intricate passages between islands and mainland they did not Sail by night when the moon was dark (Acts 20:13-16; Acts 21:1)

This Fast occurred five days before the Feast of Tabernacles, when, according to Jewish reckoning, Sailing was no longer possible. The Sailing-master and captain were anxious to reach Phœnix, a Cretan port further on, not only because they thought it a safer port to winter in, but also, no doubt, that they might lose less time, and perhaps gain the glory that accrued to the bringing in of the first corn-ship to Rome in the spring (cf. Paul showed himself not only the more prudent Sailor, but as having the greater regard not merely for human life, but also for the guidance of God. ’ In other words, less than five days remained from the date (Feast of Tabernacles) when to Sail would be contrary to the will of God. The implication is that they actually did set Sail within these five days. Another advantage is that, by this means, the chronological difficulty created by the ‘three months” stay in Malta (Acts 28:11) is somewhat alleviated; for the patty could not possibly set Sail again until the very beginning of February at the earliest
