Well I guess I didn't give enough information on myself,

I am Caerell MacDomnaill born of the Highland in 1160.  As a young man I
found me way to the sea, looking for adventure.  I have worked for many
years as a Cooper, , with stints on land as a Galoglass working for the
Irish.  I now have me own ship, which I liberated from the Spanish,  Though
I speak not the language of the Spanish I have kept the ships name as it was
when I liberated it, the "Estrella Negra".

So the type of Jerkin I am looking for need not be Scottish, but maybe
something a Scottish sailor might have found useful and taken it as a part
of his kit.

I wil look at all of the web sites and see if anything is helpful.

Thanks for all of the Advice
