Re: Santa Maria de San Vicente

I wonder if Kemati ever came back and read the answers.

Re: Santa Maria de San Vicente

Where did you see or find the name (if in a book, title and author; if on a Web site, URL)? What did the source say about it? Was it a warship, a "treasure ship," a merchantmen, or what? Is there a place associated with it? Was it wrecked (if so, where?), did it sail out of a port (which one?), wher...

Re: International Naval Wargaming Day

Who has the authority to say so?

Re: Blockade of Brest - New Book

Will the "operational study of the naval elements of the War of Jenkins Ear/War of the Austrian Succession" cover all naval operations, or just the subset of British naval operations? Even if only the latter, will it correct the mostly inadvertent but nevertheless real errors by British naval office...

Re: Battle for Gibraltar 1704

I bought my copies of Demerliac--the volumes from Louis XIV's majority (le Roi-Solei) through the First Empire only--many years ago. A few years later, a friend of mine tried to get his own set but found that the publisher just wouldn't do business with someone in the U.S., even in Euros. A contact ...

Re: Battle for Gibraltar 1704

Velez Malaga was a battle for Gibraltar—the French fleet, with Spanish galleys in attendance, was trying to drive the Anglo-Dutch fleet away so that the point of land could be retaken. But if you are only interested in the ships involved in the amphibious attack on the place itself, then you can ign...

Re: Battle for Gibraltar 1704

I don't know of anywhere to find the "officers" of any of the ships except for their commanders. Later, monthly disposition lists of the British navy included the names of lieutenants as well as captains, with some omissions, especially on foreign stations like the Mediterranean; I suppose these wer...

Re: Algerian "Navy" 1732

Thanks, I will copy the references and, where they are included, the clippings. Andreas, where (or how) are you finding the English newspaper mentions?

Re: Battle for Gibraltar 1704

You are probably going to have to look up ship dimensions and standard armament one by one in navy directories. For the British and Dutch, there are the _____ Warships in the Age of Sail series published by Seaforth Publishing. There is a Dutch directory ( Dutch Warships in the Age of Sail ) that go...

Re: Algerian "Navy" 1732

The 1733 Pennsylvania Gazette item is interesting because a recent study of the 1734-35 Spanish conquest of the Kingdom of Naples concludes that in 1733 a fleet was being fitted out for a punitive expedition (no attempt at conquest and occupation as at Oran the year before) against the city of Algie...
