Hello from Spain


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

I'm doing a little research project for my senior year of high school and I thought that I could perhaps learn a thing or two from you guys, I'm doing the research on a pair of Spanish sister frigates from the late 18th century, they are the Nª Sª de la Paz (a.k.a. Graña) and Santa Escolástica, designed by French shipwright Francisco Gautier, they were launched in Ferrol the 18-7-1778 and the 31-3-1779. The main point of my "research" is to explain the inner working of how they sailed through physics but I'll be also including the transcription and summary of various historic documents I found on these frigates, and maybe if I have enough time I'll also compare them with similar vessels from other Spanish shipbuilders.

 

Regards

Hello Victor,

You might try posting some questions here: https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/forum/13-ships-plans-and-project-research-general-research-on-specific-vessels-and-ship-types/    We have a lot of knowledgeable people here that might be able to help either with some answers or point you to places that might have the knowledge.   

 

As for the physics part, pretty much all sailing ships of that era were using the same physics.  The differences will be the design philosophy of the designer.  Many of the Spanish ships were influenced by the French designers as I recall so that might open another avenue for research.
