    Where I can find a page, somewhere in internet, with all PotC-NH ships image and description?

    I seeked around, without results, when I wanted see for the Naval Ketch, a real strange ship, that is very beautiful (I like a lot the way in wich is made), but have no sense: too low on cargo, and also on build points, then seem isn't a hunting ship, nor a commercial one.

    @Hylie Pistof

    I'm unsure. I have seeked also in the little manual in DB, and the ship don't appear.

    Is a real strange ship, little, more or less like a sloop, with a little no. of hull pts, like 300, and also a similar cargo pts. Seem really beautiful, but hasn't the power to become a good hunting little vessel, like the Sloop, and also too little cargo for carry merchandises and have a good gain.

    There's a ship recognition guide in the Documentation folder of the mod but it's seven years out of date, so the Nonsuch doesn't appear in it.

    If you want to identify a ship, sometimes it might be easiest to post a screenshot on the forum. :doff

    The Naval Ketch (KetchNavy) was a real actual ship and the stats for her are accurate. Most of the ships in the game are complete fantasies so real ships look bad in comparison unless their stats are beefed up.

    Shouldn't the fantasy ships be toned down then instead?

    Well, as fantastic or not, Naval Ketch its really beautiful at sight, I like his stile. But is simply strange at my eyes: how I can do with a class 7 Naval Ketch, 911 hull points, 8 guns and 350 cargo? A simple 12 gun Lugger-then not a powerful frigate, a poor 8 class Lugger- can easily overpower a Naval Ketch, and also as merchantile vessel, isn't well suited: usually I take the Hoy, also a 8 guns ship but much fast, agile, and with almost 1400 cargo pts capacity.......

    Never happen. 4-6 years ago a push was made to give the ships more realistic stats like reduced cargo capacity, crew, and cannons number and size. A lot of resistance was met then and since then the ships have been getting progressively bigger again.

    For example the Yacht has more cargo capacity, crew, and cannons than the Hoy and yet it can comfortably fit inside the Hoy. Compared to the Naval Ketch Nonsuch the Yacht is a little longer but narrower and lower so should have less of everything. And then there are the sloops, brigs, and caravels..............

    The Lugger is maybe slightly bigger than the Nonsuch and should have similar statistics. What would that do to the game?
