Dear Wind, dear Captains,

 

The draughts are part of a longer thesis on the comparison of Britisch, French, and American 18-pounder-frigates, written by Dirk Böndel, which can be found here (https://depositonce.tu-berlin.de/bitstream/11303/598/1/Dokument_8.pdf),

where the specs of the frigate classes are listed. Unfortunately it is written in German, but there are many plans, drawings, diagrams, and tables.

Cheers

Thank you this is very useful. Language is not a barrier.

It's  actually a Chapman Designed Privateer Frigate! Plates 31-32. It was his biggest frigate in Architechtura Navalis Merotica, and To my knowledge Amiral Paris' version was more or less a reprint of the same plan. However it may have influenced the design of the later Continental Frigate Indien/South Carolina (Which was French Designed and Dutch-built IIRC, and also quite large for her era)
