HMS Fly Swan class Sloop 1776Kit

The British Admiralty commissioned this sixth rater in August of 1775. She was christened the H.M.S. Fly as she slid off the launching ways on September 14, 1776. She displaced 300 tons, measured 97' and 7" on deck and carried a crew of 125. Sixteen cannon and 16 swivel guns served as armament. Sleek hull lines and lavish ornamentation contributed to her beauty. Not much remains about her career history, except that she captured two French privateers. She was lost off the coast of New Foundland in 1802.
