Notes

Le Protée and L’Invincible

Le Protée‘s length on the gun deck was 164 feet and her beam was 44 feet, yielding a burden of a little more than 1,423 tons. She carried a crew of 500 men.

The photograph shows a French 74 gun ship, similar to the two ships used in the story. The photograph (obviously of a model) was found on Wikipedia and is used here with permission under the terms of the CeCILL Agreement: (from “CEA CNRS INRIA Logiciel Libre”)
