    I have read with great interest the discussion about distance measurement; 
    cables and shackles and furlongs, etc.  How about some information on casks, 
    barrels, hogsheads, tuns, etc.?  O'Brian and Forrester both make use of the 
    terms but I am curious about their meaning.  Any help out there?  Tom Carr
