Object ID ZAZ4855
Description Scale: 1:48. Plan showing the inboard profile, upper deck, and lower deck of Parthian (1809), a 10-gun Brig to be built by contract by Messrs Barnard and Roberts of Deptford. The only Cherokee class ship to be built by this firm in 1807/8 was the Parthian. The title has been erased and re-dated to 25 February 1817 and refers to the Atholl (1820), a 28-gun Brig Sloop built of larch. The dimensions of the ship do not match the plan, although the alterations in green may be relevant to the Atholl. These alterations relate to the capstan, forecastle deck addition, extended platforms and the removal of bulkheads. Initialled by Joseph Tucker [Surveyor of the Navy, 1813-1831], Henry Peake [Surveyor of the Navy, 1806-1822], and Robert Seppings [Surveyor of the Navy, 1813-1832].
