Dog Watch

The normal watch from 1600 until 2000. It is broken into two smaller watches (first dog and second dog) so that everyone has the opportunity to eat the evening meal. They change the rotation of the watches where there are only two groups of watch standers (mostly from the days of smaller wooden ships).
