Re: Henry and his voyage

Tim; I agree with economic reasons but existing or future trade was not
possible with uninhabited territories. I still maintain that it was the
timber resources which were logical at this point, not only as a scare
commodity but also as a demand item for ship building. And it was the
economics of ship building that played a big part as single keeled hulls
were needed and not any tree provided such lumber. Now over to your
researchers! Neil
