  1. Will fire another curve-ball in their, Admiral Sir Josias Rowley - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Josias_Rowley,_1st_Baronet Won an extremely difficult campaign against the French in Mauritius (Ile De France) despite some heroically inept actions of his Captains. This is despite being heavily outnumbered and outgunned AND operating in the middle of the Indian ocean during Hurricane season. Would echo some of the comments about Nelson, i accept he is probably the greatest Admiral ever and won some stunning victories, however he was commanding fleets of the some of the most effect
  2. If the Temeraire is the way you want to go, here on the designs for HMS Dreadnought which was a ship in the same class. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Temeraire_%281798%29#mediaviewer/File:Neptune_class_plan.jpg Unfortunately whilst their are many painting of Temeraire most contain known inaccuracies.
  3. Unfortunately a commonly stated mistake. They where actually two different ships. The first ship in the Royal Navy was a captured french third rate, launched in 1749 and captured by the British in the battle of lagos in 1759. She was subsequently sold out of the navy and broken up in 1784. The Temeraire of Turner fame, which fought at Trafalgar was the second ship to bear the name, laid down in 1793 in Chatham and was indeed a 98 gun second rate and would be a great candidate for a generic second rate BUT i sense the admins where looking for a none British ship.
  4. Only problem with Bucentaure is that it was late in the period and by the time it was launched was only really a third rate.

  6. Why not use the French version of the Tonnant (Captured by the British at the Nile) She was the lead ship in her class laid down in 1787 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Tonnant_%281798%29
  7. Pulling away and in the background the Frigate begins to sink
  8. Start pulling away and broadside fired into stern
  9. Contact at the rear of the ship, wasn't sure it would work as it's normally a little more central
