Can I just take a moment to point out how insane 18th century frigates like the HMS Leopard are?
Portland class 50 gun frigate, I believe.
I mean. These ships are hand built. Those sails and rigging FUCK it’s crazy and right now I’m having such a nautical fangasm it’s ridiculous
I mean, I’m much more interested submarines but damn, if I can’t admire how crazy and precious sailing warships are. Ugu ships and naaaavaaaaal traditions
