Hmmm the plan and the picture don't really match hehe.

I am unconvinced about adding post war ships :)

It would be broken OP, a 74 would have trouble fending this thing off even in a broadside duel.

Why do you say that?

The midships bulwarks weren't usually shown on the design draughts. Constitution's wasn't, for instance.

The stern gallery is aligned with the lower gun deck on the ship's plans. In the drawing there is a gun deck below the stern gallery.

Yeah bulwarks don't match either but as you say it's not an issue, they may have been added later.

NA timeline : 1680-1820

That ship built in 1832 has to be in the History section as other build after 1820 actually are. :)

And the shipyard forum might be renamed "Shipyard (1780-1820)"

+ a pinned thread should warn posters about the timeline and makes them know about the history section for later ships.
