Haratik posted a topic in National ship and other thematic or special ship collectionsWhile scanning ship plans for my other thread, I came across a pair of smaller "tribute" ships, a schooner and a brig, that were built for the Dey of Algiers* by the Americans. The prize I've been looking for, the frigate Crescent (1797)**, was not in the book, and only text measurements seem to be available for her. The other two ships, are presented below: Tribute ship Skjoldebrand (1798) Tribute Ship Hassan Bashaw (1797/8) *Further reading: Definition of Dey **Not to be confused with any Royal Navy ships bearing the name HMS Crescent.
