  Galley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Galleys continued in mainstream use until the introduction of the broadside sailing ship into the Mediterranean in the 17th Century and then continued to function in minor and auxiliary roles until the advent of steam propulsion.
Galleys saw a European comeback in the 14th century as Venice expanded its influence in the Mediterranean in response to increased Turkish naval presence after 1470, but medieval triremes used a simpler arrangement with one row of oars and three rowers to each oar.
Galleys made their final appearance in a Mediterranean battle in the Battle of Chesma in 1770; they lingered on in the shallow Baltic Sea and took part in the Russo-Swedish War in 1790.

 ninemsn Encarta - Galley
The earliest galleys were probably long, narrow, open boats with decks at the bow and sometimes at the stern, and with a narrow gangway extending down the centre of the hull over the rowers.
The early galleys appear to have been fitted with a single mast and sail, placed a little forward of amidships; some of the later three-banked galleys had two or three masts and sails, which were lowered before going into battle.
Merchant galleys were built in New England at the end of the 17th century and in the Mediterranean and Baltic countries as late as the first quarter of the 19th century.

 The Galley in Combat
Early modern galleys were heavier than their classical precursors, and the later vessels were not as fast (with a maximum dash speed of some seven knots to the classical trireme's ten) nor as maneuverable.
Where the classical galley captain used maneuver to protect the sides of his vessel from attack, the sides of early modern galleys were ordinarily protected by their neighbors in formation.
On the galleys of Spain and her Western allies, the centerline bow gun was commonly flanked by one, two, or even three pairs of smaller forward-firing cannon.

Also, unique to many of the Barbary Galleys was the installation of the rudder to the sternpost (in the Northern Europe the method had been in use since the early 13th Century).
Because of it's slim and narrow hull design, the galley's were rather unstable and suitable primarily for calm, and protected inlets and waterways.
Galleys were capable of a speed of about 9 knots.

To obtain a proof on a galley-press the galley containing the type is placed on the flat bed, the type is inked with a brayer, a sheet of paper is placed on the type, and the roller is run over the face of the type.
Owing to the fact that the roller frequently squeezes the type into the paper, the paper is apt to slip over the face of the type and smear the proof.
Care should be taken to see that the galley has not too thick a bottom, for if the impression is too heavy there is no way of altering it.

 HMS Victory: food and the galley
The galley provided the means for cooking hot food for all of the ships crew - at the time of Trafalgar, 821 men.
Due to the risk of fire in a wooden ship, the galley fire was put out in rough weather or during action to prevent sparks or burning embers from setting light to the deck around the galley.
The galley cook was often a naval pensioner or wounded sailor - unable to perform the normal heavy shipboard tasks, he cooked the food for all the crew - a cook's pay substantially supplemented the poor pension given to a man wounded in battle.

You can take any positive whole number with at least two digits, and with a few manipulations, the end result is always nine!
For example: for 121, you get 1 + 2 + 1 = 4, giving you 117 which is divisible by 9 (13) with a remainder of 4; for 86 add 8+5=14, then you add 1+4=5, giving you 81 (9) with the remainder of 5.
