I would love to make a fleet and be like Oliver Hazard Perry, (who's victory actually wasn't that surprising, he just was good with words) and make my own fleet to battle my enemies, but i don't have any boat hulls, or enough brown pieces, and only one cannon, so aw well.  Does anyone else have any navies?

Whilst this is brilliant, the smallest ships of the navy (atleast Englands) at that time were normally cutters, with approximately 10 guns. The last ship however does look like a 5th rate (or 45th, perhaps 6th, I don't remember which :/) which is essentially a frigate (albeit a small one). basically I'm saying that they are a little under-gunned, although on the most part the sails are right. I still want one though
EDIT: @Skyian Frigates are in the region of 28-65 guns, below are sloops and cutters and above are shipd of the line which range from 72 to about 100 (give or take a few)..

I was judging them based on the sails.  I know they are all undergunned, frigates are supposed to go somewhere between 35-50 guns on them, but this is not the case.  So i went on the rigging.

@Ex_Bajir and Silverdream

it is at school. and is two years old, so some of the guns are gone. like the main gun, which was essentially my artillery tank, on a turret.

i'll get a pic as soon as possible
