    I have Henry's Razee, I was not 'in gear' for her original condition. It was my confusion, partly linked to the recent discussion of 1803-1812 US sloops, and other ships.

    I was puzzled for a fraction of a second, wondering where your spardeck frigate was... then realised that your Majestic isn't the 1813 re-armament.

    The typical weight of a 6lb gun is 16-17 cwt (with longer patterns seen on e.g. the quarterdeck of early 1st rates being heavier (up to around 20cwt)).
    Ammunition weight is 8lb per shot, powder plus...

    Her gun fit seems to be 6lb (with carronades a replacement 1:1 with 12lb carronades as a schooner), after conversion to a brig a larger fit of weapons (2 9lb, plus 14 carronades in 18lb)

    I'd probably rig that as a fore staysail, only taking the jib to the fore top mast. Looks odd with the different line of action of the stay above and within the sail.

    181'6 vs 174'4 looks a bit short for LOA, possibly deck length on spardeck/f'csle-qtr deck?

    And yet, you track crew and 'hull' and rigging casualties separately. There is some inconsistency in that reasoning. Are there also morale rules, taking another bite from the same apple?
