17th century

I have a question about English/American language. I'm to write a story that needs archaizing/stylization of dialogs. Is there any general rule of the way that simple people (especially people that are bound to the sea; sailors, fishermen etc) in 17th century would talk? I mean things like skipping letters (fe. replacing "g" in "ing" with and apostrophe) and such.

Any help is appreciated :)
