Both pictures show the fifth Vanguard (1787 - 1821), not the one designed by Symonds ;)

Plus if you're going to propose a ship, you need to provide line drawings AND measurements.  That being said she's 10 years out of timeline.

She had double decks of 32's like most of the US ships of the line did too.  Would actually be nice to have a double deck 32's SOL in game maybe something that fell into the 2nd rate rang as that would prob be to heavy for 3rd rate.   LIke a Minni 1st rate that is more classed like a 2nd rate.
