RN Fleet Numbers 1793 to 1820

I didn't see this thread earlier, a very interesting set of lists and it does support my theory that SOL were a common ship class. This list shows* the made up nearly a quarter of the royal navy's active ship strength in 1800.

As per our discussion in the other thread about permium ships, I now believe my source was referring to ships for sea service and for harbour service which are both in commission and in ordinary. The total numbers for the years is very close to number for 1790 of 197 SOL.

Very good stuff sir!

*usual caveats for Internet sources apply.
