Bonden's Age

Just a few comments regarding Bonden's probable age: I don't think the historical timeline exactly fits Bonden's age at his first appearance in the Canon; although, the evidence may be somewhat contradictory. Clearly, of course, he wasn't toward the 7 end of the probable historically based scale, and 17 might fit with Jack's decision to offer to make him a midshipman. On the other hand, he had won a fleet-wide boxing tournament (referenced in FSOW, I believe), presumably, at sometime before becoming Jack's coxswain, which would make him more probably in at least his mid-20s, although, that seems a little old for Jack to consider making him a midshipman. --Jblumel 21:06, 21 March 2009 (GMT)
