Granado was one of twelve bomb vessels that were built to supplement the depleted bomb vessel fleet at the outbreak of the War of Jenkins' Ear in 1739 and the ensuing War of Austrian Succession. These small ketch-rigged vessels were designed for laying siege from the sea and were built to accommodate huge and heavy mortars with tremendous recoils. A brief outline of the development of bomb vessels is followed by an in-depth description of the Granado herself and an account of her career.
This volume features: full description of the ship and its place in the development of bomb vessel design; full list of scantlings to which Granado was built; pictorial selection depicting the model of Granado in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich; and around 300 perspective and 3-view drawings, with in-depth descriptive keys of every detail of the ship - general arrangements, hull construction, fittings, masts and yards, rigging and sails, and armament.
