Sella22 Posted January 5, 2016 Share #1 Posted January 5, 2016 Hello everyone this is my first post in the forums.I have been researching Greek ships of the 19th century and i would like to share what i have gathered so far since there isnt much out there. Notes: 1)The caliber of the guns on most ships is uknown.Although it is speculated that most of them carried 12pdr guns. 2)Gun number and gun ports don't always match.Some pictures are more artistic than realistic. 3)Some names of the ships are the same.Howewer they were either owned from a different family or from a different island.In most cases either from the island of Hydra or the island of Spetses or Psara. http://https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydra_(island) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spetses 4)The models and the drawings shown below were not made by me. Corvette Loudovikos(Louis) 1836 The model above is exhibited in the Hellenic Maritime Museum. Info: Loudovikos was a corvette of the Hellenic Navy built in 1838 at the Poros Naval Shipyard, designed by naval architect Georgios Tombazis. It was a relatively large ship (length 44.1 m, 1000-ton displacement), was armed with two 22-lb plus four 20-lb long guns, and twenty-four 32-lb carronades, and had a crew of 182. The ship was not operationally utilized, and since 1846 it was used as a training ship (renamed Messolongion in 1862). It officially remained in service with the Hellenic Navy until 1873.
