 Montañés

In 1795 she fought a French force of 8 ships of the line (including one three-decker) and 2 frigates single-handed in the bay of San Feliu de Guíxols.

With 2400 copper plates on her hull, she was much faster than other ships of the same era, reaching 14 (rather than the average 10) knots downwind and 10 (rather than 8) knots upwind.

Simply - Bad ass!

They are nil these Frenchmen! :lol:

Do you have the names of French ships?

Threedecks says :'1795/03/30Off Cape San Sebastian, action versus 8 french SoL & 2 frigates." https://threedecks.org/index.php?display_type=show_ship&id=2708

Wiki says : 'À la fin du mois de mars, le vaisseau rencontre, au sud du cap San Sebastian une division française forte de huit vaisseaux de ligne et de deux frégates3. Profitant de sa vitesse, le Montañés parvient à se réfugier dans le port de San Feliú de Guixols et y affronte les assauts français3. Après avoir tiré environ 1 100 coups de canons, le Montañés repousse la division française au prix de pertes minimes3.'  https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montañés_(1794)#Rodr.C3.ADguez_Gonzalez2013

Why is everybody so keen on sailing 74s? Ain't the frigates the vessels promising the interesting battles?

 

well a rear admiral does not fit so easily in a frigate

You're a few months too late, dude. :P

I don't care.. :P 

I would like to see the Danish-Norwegian Line ship - Norge (1801) 74 cannons, captured by GB in 1807.

I know nothing about ships, but I found this ship thanks to springby's post.
I only found some basic info about history and armament, but no ship plans.. :(

Wouldn´t mind seeing this ship ingame...definitely something different.

One sentence on the article: the author is correct by questioning Bille´s statement about the 'unprecedented' height of the lower battery of 6'. Hohlenberg´s friend and predecessor at the post of fabrikmester, Andreas Gerner, built ships of the line with a similiar freeboard. As did Hohlenberg´s other mentor, af Chapman (e.g. 7' 4'' for the Kronprins Gustav -class).

Malachi posted this in another thread.
