Exploration and Survey Ships

Recommended Posts

About Exploration ship classes

 
 Most of the XVIII-XIXth century exploration ships are modified cargo ships : stable barges, barks, barques longues, fluyts… Indeed, for long distances, cargo space is needed for storage of supply, medicine, scientific equipment, collected items... Besides, few were designed and built for exploration from the start (HMS Discovery).
 
Stable barges with their strong structure, such as le Gros Ventre (1766), will provide significant resistance to the unleashed elements of the wildest oceans while small barques longues with shallow draught such as La Belle (1680) will sail in shallows and explore up rivers and lakes and along rocky coasts. Both are manoeuvrable and small enough to enter an estuary.
 
Exploration ships are often lightly armed, whether they’re escorted or not. Ten to sixteen guns are enough to protect oneself against unpleasant lightly armed encounters and to fire during official ceremonies. Moreover, explorers avoid high traffic maritime routes... However, the modern french Corvette La Favorite (1829) with her 24 guns rivals 20+ gun-war corvettes build for naval combat.
 
Exploration ships presented in this thread so far :

- Le Gros Ventre, French stable barge (1766)

- HMS Bounty, British merchant vessel (1784)

- Descubierta & Atrevida, Spanish corvettes (1789)

- La Belle, French barque longue (1680)

- HMS Endeavour, British bark (1764)

- La Favorite, French corvette (1829) 

- L’Astrolabe, French corvette (1811/25)

- La Recherche, French stable barge (1787)

- HMS Discovery, British survey ship (1789)

- HMS Beagle, British brig (1820)

- Vostok, Russian Sloop-of War (1818)

- Mirny, Russian Sloop-of-War (1819)

- HMS Carcass, British refitted bomb vessel (1759)

La Boudeuse, French frigate (1766)

HMS Bounty, also known as HM Armed Vessel Bounty, was a small merchant vessel purchased by the Royal Navy for a botanical mission. The ship, under the command of William Bligh, was sent to the Pacific Ocean to acquire breadfruit plants and transport them to British possessions in the West Indies. That mission was never completed, due to a mutiny led by the acting MasterFletcher Christian. This was the famous Mutiny on the Bounty.
 
Bounty was originally known as collier Bethia, built in 1784 at the Blaydes shipyard in Kingston upon HullEast Yorkshire, England. The vessel was purchased by the Royal Navy for £1,950 on 23 May 1787, refit, and renamed Bounty. The ship was relatively small at 215 tons, but had three masts and was full-rigged. After conversion for the breadfruit expedition, she was equipped with four 4-pounder (1.8 kg) cannons and ten swivel guns.

HMS (Bark) Endeavour

10-gun British bark

1764

 

ZshylUY.jpg

Replik der Endeavour, 1994

 

HMS Endeavour, also known as HM Bark Endeavour, was a British Royal Navy research vessel that Lieutenant James Cook commanded on his first voyage of discovery, to Australia and New Zealand, from 1769 to 1771.

 

History


She was launched in 1764 as the collier Earl of Pembroke, and the Navy purchased her in 1768 for a scientific mission to the Pacific Ocean and to explore the seas for the surmised Terra Australis Incognita or "unknown southern land". The Navy renamed and commissioned her as His Majesty's Bark the Endeavour. She departed Plymouth in August 1768, rounded Cape Horn, and reached Tahiti in time to observe the 1769 transit of Venus across the Sun. She then set sail into the largely uncharted ocean to the south, stopping at the Pacific islands of Huahine, Borabora, and Raiatea to allow Cook to claim them for Great Britain. In September 1769, she anchored off New Zealand, the first European vessel to reach the islands since Abel Tasman's Heemskerck 127 years earlier.

In April 1770, Endeavour became the first ship to reach the east coast of Australia, when Cook went ashore at what is now known as Botany Bay. Endeavour then sailed north along the Australian coast. She narrowly avoided disaster after running aground on the Great Barrier Reef, and Cook had to throw her guns overboard to lighten her. He then beached her on the mainland for seven weeks to permit rudimentary repairs to her hull. On 10 October 1770, she limped into port in Batavia (now named Jakarta) in the Dutch East Indies for more substantial repairs, her crew sworn to secrecy about the lands they had visited. She resumed her westward journey on 26 December, rounded the Cape of Good Hope on 13 March 1771, and reached the English port of Dover on 12 July, having been at sea for nearly three years.

Largely forgotten after her epic voyage, Endeavour spent the next three years shipping Navy stores to the Falkland Islands. Renamed and sold into private hands in 1775, she briefly returned to naval service as a troop transport during the American War of Independence and was scuttled in a blockade of Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, in 1778. Her wreck has not been precisely located, but relics, including six of her cannon and an anchor, are displayed at maritime museums worldwide. A replica of Endeavour was launched in 1994 and is berthed alongside the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney Harbour. The space shuttle Endeavour is named for the original ship. Endeavour also features on the New Zealand 50-cent coin.

Her voyages

She took part in three expeditions (1826-1843). On the second survey voyage the young naturalist Charles Darwin was on board, and his work made Beagle one of the most famous ships in history.

i am sorry but we dont like the idea of going past our current timeline end 1820 past then you get corvets with 24lb longs or 18 longs who would throw the current game ballance overboard. specially sailing characteristics. so far  only one of the ships falls out the rest is fine.

But H. Darby wrote :

Edit - H. Darby (Information based on the previous Ship Suggestion thread for 2015):

Ships from the years: 1600-1830 hard limit, 1690-1790 preferred

 

See : http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/7306-player-ship-selection-1st-half-2016/?p=137503

 

So : 1820 ? 1830 ?  :)

I'd like to put a plug in for Columbia Rediviva, an American explorer/trader built in 1773.  The Rediviva (latin for revived) came after a 1787 refit before her exploration voyage.  She was accompanied by the 90 ton sloop (later re-rigged as a brig) Lady Washington as a tender for the first part of two voyages that culminated with the discovery of the Columbia River and becoming the first United States vessel to circumnavigate the world.  She was a 213 tons ship rigged vessel with a LOD of 83' 6", a beam of 24' 2" and a drought of 11'.  She carried two heavier and two lighter cannons on her broadside, and two heavy stern chasers (not sure the actual size of these cannons, but I would guess based on her size and the nature of her voyage, probably 6 and 9 lbers).  The 'pirate ship' at Disneyland is a full size replica of Columbia (from the waterline to the rail; the rigging is a bit smaller than the original).

La Boudeuse

("The female Sulky")

1766

 French 1st-class frigate ("frégate de 12")

26 then 32 guns (12-lb)

 

La_Boudeuse.jpg

 

Her plans, unique, have been lost. All we know of her is :

- that he was small for a 12-lb frigate, e. g. the Belle Poule (1765), but slightly bigger than an average 8-lb one :

40,60 m x 10,50 m x 5,35 (?) m. 550 t. 960 gross,

- during the first attempt with full cargo holds, a gusting wind broke a mast. Back on shore, fearing for the structural integrity and the balance of his ship, explorer Bougainville asked to shorten the masts and to have her armament of 26 guns (14 12-lb guns in place +12 guns as ballast) replaced by lighter 8-lb guns. After the voyage, as she was finally used as a warship (with lighter cargo), 32 guns were set up : 26 12-lb guns + 6 6-lb guns (deck),

- Her latter ornaments, dated 1776 :

M5026_PH_007295_2.jpg

M5026_ph_007300_2.jpg

La Boudeuse's latter ornaments, dated 1776 - SHM D1 68 fol 7 cl 7295

 

Her Voyage

With L'Étoile ("The Star"), a 20-gun (6 lbs) fluyt (1762) used as storeship, La Boudeuse took part of the first french circumnavigation of the globe (1766-1769) led by Bougainville with naturalist and physician Philibert Commerçon, astronomer Pierre-Antoine Veron and Jeanne Baré, the first woman to have completed a voyage of circumnavigation.

Their voyage

 
The twin Corvettes Descubierta and Atrevida took part of the Malaspina's expedition that was the most important voyage of discovery dispatched by Spain in the 18th century. It had two primary goals, the first being to increase geographic and scientific knowledge in general, the second being to check on the status of Spain's vast empire, especially along the west coast of North America, where the Russians and the British were expanding their influence.
 
Armament
22 x 8 lbs + 4 x 6 lbs
For the expedition : 14 x 6 lbs + 2 x 4 lbs.
