  1. Hethwill the Harmless

    Old prototype sloop

    Can we bring this into the modern NA era ? Maybe as a alternative to the Trader Cutter and Trade Lynx ? Rum Runner !
  2. Swan class ships The class was designed by the Surveyor of the Navy, John Williams, and two vessels to this design (Swan and Kingfisher) were ordered in January 1766. Twenty-three more were ordered to the same design between 1773 and 1779; they formed the 'standard' ship sloop design of the British Navy during the American Revolutionary War, during which eleven of them were lost. Surviving vessels went on to serve during the French Revolutionary War and Napoleonic War. The design provided for 16 gunports (8 per side, excluding the bridle-ports) but one pair was initially left unoccupied, and the ships were always rated at 14 guns. However an eighth pair of guns was added from 1780 onwards to utilise the vacant ports, without any change in the nominal rating. The Swan class sloops were unusually attractive for the type of vessel. Not only did they have sleek hull lines but they also carried an unusual amount of decoration for their size. They were built just before the Admiralty issued orders that all vessels (especially lesser rates and unrated vessels) should have minimal decoration and carvings to save on costs, due to the seemingly ever-continuing war with France and other nations. Following the initial 1766 order for two ships, a second pair was ordered in 1773 (Cygnet and Atalanta) and a further five in 1775 (Pegasus in April, Fly in August, and Swift, Dispatch and Fortune in October); all these were built in the Royal Dockyards. Another five were contracted in November 1775 to be built by commercial shipbuilders (Hound, Hornet, Vulture, Spy and Cormorant), and a further pair during 1776 (Zebraand Cameleon). Another two were ordered from the Royal Dockyards in January 1777 (Fairy and Nymph) and a final seven from commercial constructors over the following 30 months (Savage, Fury, Delight andThorn during 1777, Bonetta and Shark during 1778, and Alligator in 1779). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HMS Pegasus Building HMS Pegasus http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/2877-hms-pegasus-by-nils-langemann-1776-1780-scale-164-16-gun-swan-class-sloop-from-amati-victory-models-plan/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ HMS Vulture HMS Vulture was a 14 gun ship sloop of the Swan class, launched on 18 March 1776. She served during both the American Revolutionary War and the French Revolutionary War before being sold for disposal in 1802.Vulture is perhaps best known for being the warship to which Benedict Arnold fled on the Hudson River in 1780 after unsuccessfully trying to betray the Continental Army's fortress at West Point, New York to the British.

She was launched on 13 July 1770 at Chatham Dockyard, and completed there on 21 November 1770. She took part in the American Revolutionary War, enforcing the blockade of the Delaware Bay, and served in the Battle of Turtle Gut Inlet, near Cape May, New Jersey. While under the temporary command of Lieutenant Hugh Christian, she was burnt by her own crew to avoid capture on 7 August 1778 in Narragansett Bay during the Battle of Rhode Island.[1] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ HMS Fly HMS Fly was a Swan class ship sloop of the Royal Navy and was launched on 14 September 1776. She performed mainly convoy escort duties during the French Revolutionary Wars, though she did capture three privateers. She foundered and was lost with all hands early in 1802. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Unknown Swan type ship Info page: http://www.admiraltymodels.com/Models.html

    is the Pickle under-gunned?

    I know I know, wikipedia isn't the best source when it comes down to it...but is there any data to back up the claim on wikipedia that the pickle actually had 8 12 pounder cannonades? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Pickle_(1800) also, where is my figurehead!!!!!!! (kidding)
  4. The idea: We need more small ships to help the new player experience. These ships are a lot smaller than everything else, and so hopefully several could be made without taking up a bunch of time. Feel free to add more ship plans My idea is this. We get more small vessels: luggers, ketches, hoys, etc, 2-6 or so guns. The new player starts out as a Midshipman captaining one of these (maybe the hoy). This is in a tutorial screen where the player is taught the controls and basics of how to sail the ship. After this, the player, who is on coastal patrol, gets attacked by pirates or comes across a smuggler, who is also in one of these small ships, and the player is then taught the basics of combat and boarding. The player wins, gets sent to Port, and the tutorial explains the port screen. The admiralty then gives the new player an 8 gun ketch or lugger. The new player now has a larger and better ship, a step up in the world and a sense of progress. From there the admiralty charges the new player to leave port and hunt down smugglers that are in the area around the starting location in large numbers (1-2 ships per fleet at max). The player hunts these down, gets xp, gold, sends the ships back to port or to the admiralty, and gets money and xp and admiralty points built up. On promotion to Ensign, the admiralty recommends the player broaden their experience. 66ft (Dutch???) Hoy Dutch hoys were 2 masted (as opposed to British hoys which were usually single-masted). The British bought 19 66ft 4 gun (3 carronades + 1 24lber) hoys from the Dutch in the 1790s that were involved in some battles. Hayling (1760) British Single-masted hoy Eclair (1795) British 3 gun Lugger Le Coureur 8 gun Lugger. Cherokee (1774) 6 Gun Ketch Fly (1752) 8 gun ketch. Green ink is modifications that were added to make it ship rigged. Shark (1732) 8 gun ketch
