Nice ship. Would need to carefully consider in game armament. Maybe 24 pdr carros?

that sounds about right, with 12lb meds or longs and 6 pounders up front. a fair looking 5th rate. It looks like there are a large amount of square rigs so it should be a better brig.

With the addition of the herc I have realized how fun ships with few, but heavy guns are. A ship like this would be a fun light ship, and crew management could serve to balance it along with diminished DPS
