1450 x 525 mm
Scale: 1:48. Plan showing the body plan, sheer lines, and longitudinal half-breadth proposed (and approved) for 'Adamant' (1780) to be built by contract, and probably for 'Assistance' (1781). The plan was used for 'Europa' (1783), and 'Bristol' (1775), all 50-gun Fourth Rate, two-deckers. The 'Portland' (1770) and 'Renown' (1774) are listed on the reverse, but would have been completed before this plan was created.
