GUEST,Ian Origins: The Flying Cloud (86* d) RE: Origins: The Flying Cloud 05 Mar 12

I have looked at several of the versions of the song above and in regard to the size of the Flying cloud and number of guns. I would add that a ship of about 1000 tons would need a crew of about 40 and would carry about 14 guns if compared with ships of the 1800s. Comparable with a frigate of that period.
