Naval History Question: In the 1500s/1600s, how did people get from a large boat (ship-of-the-line) onto a smaller boat (e.g., a pinnace)? Was the pinnace hauled up to the deck of the bigger ship? Did people climb down ropes? Walk across planks? Etc. If nobody knows, what's a good resource for me to look it up?
