Does anybody know how to find the French Captains' Logs of the Nepoleonic Wars in the French National Archives?

The Rochefort branch of Service historique de la Défense has published the following finding aid: MR C Forces maritimes 1718-1920

A typical listing for the period you are interested in:

MR 2 C 52 La Vigie, aviso, commandant Mahé, lieutenant de vaisseau. 1803-1805
Journal de bord : 11 fascicules (16 germinal - 5 pluviôse an XII ; 10 pluviôse an XII - 20 frimaire an XIII)
