  6. Ahoy, Mates I am researching a new project (the frigate Berlin) and am struggling to find information. I have to date found a rigging plot for 17th century ships http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/389-17th-century-rigging/ from the web The frigate Berlin was built in 1674 as a 15-gun warship for the Grand Electorate of Brandenburg. She saw almost continuous action in the Mediterranean and the Baltic until 1681. She was captured by the Dutch in 1688, and never seen again. Translated by Google (from the manufacturer's web site) The frigate was one of BERLIN first boats for hire that the Navy of Brandenburg began to provision of Elector Frederick William. built in Zeeland in 1674, the ship belonged to the fleet Brandenburg until 1688. I am starting this forum in hopes that some more experienced builders might be able to direct me to any books, links, or sites regarding this frigate that would help my quest. Thank you
