For complete information on the implements used in the whale fishery, see my previous book, Harpoons and Other Whalecraft. My web site, http://www.whalecraft.net, is based on the book and has all the information plus some that has been added since the book was first published.
For a good source of information on whaling, visit the web site for the New Bedford Whaling Museum,
