Re: linking ships to stations (royal navy)

But as threedecks is a site interested only in naval warfare prior to 1850, modern US military bases are of no relevance what so ever. I would also argue that only Americans (and possibly Isis and Russia) have a vested interest in that knowledge.

Re: Greek Sloop-of-War Karteria (Perseverance) 1826-1831

Syrett & DiNardo have Frank Hastings as Lieutenant RN Mar 1814, Commander RN in April 1819, Struck off in Aug 1819 and also dead in 1819, they are also missing his middle name. It is of course possible that there are two Frank Hastings and they have been concatenated/confused. This thought is streng...

Re: diagonal yards

Looking at the first picture the background suggests to me that it's in the Solent outside Portsmouth and as it's also a 3-decker may well be the same ship.

Re: diagonal yards

Looks to me as if the ships has been hulked, had it's masts removed, and is in use as a store. The 'diagonal yards' are probably a form of hoist for handling cargo.
