Anatomy of the Ship: The 74-Gun Ship Bellona

Customer Reviews:

The backbone of the royal fleet

By Robert Lester - July 20, 2001

The 74 Gun ship was the backbone of the Royal Fleet in the days of sail due to its' firepower and good sailing qualities. The Bellona was famous for the sinking of a French vessel of similar proportions in its' first engagement. The Bellona then went on to serve for 54 years, a considerable service history keeping in mind most ships lasted about 20.The book itself covers (as usual) the history of this vessel and its' type, and has great photos of Models in the National Maritime Museum in the UK. The line drawings are aimed at the scratch builder, so good is it's detail. If you have seen any of Lavery's works you know to expect only the best. The rigging and running rigging is all set out as well, but strangely, no belaying plan, which I would haev expected in a book so detailed. Hard to find and well worth having.

Unlike the model makers for whom this book was probably intended, I am currently re-rigging a full sized 37 metre Barquentine and I purchased this book for inspiration on the rigging and handling of square sails. Unfortunately this one on the 74 gun ship is rather light on rig details, though it is strong on construction, armement and interior, but it was impossible to establish which book concentrates most on which aspect.

Fortunately I was able to find lots of alternative books such as "The Young Sea Officers Sheet Anchor" and "Masting & Rigging the Clipper Ship and Ocean Carrier", so the barquentine will set sail with an authentic rig anyway.

But this book does, after all, provide an... read more
