I have now got a preliminary working total of 74 warships, from 11 different nations/powers (listed in alphabetical order):
  • Barbary States
  • Denmark/Norway
  • England/Britain
  • France
  • Holland
  • Russia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Turkey/Ottoman Empire
  • USA
  • Venice

Some of these will have more types than others, depending on their prominence or importance as a maritime power. For example, the English/British and the Dutch will have a larger number each while at the other end of the scale, Venice will only have one or at most two, given that its status as a maritime power was all but vanishing during this period.

However, it's possible that I could make some adjustments to any or all of these powers as I go along and discover more information.
I decided not to include any of the east Asian powers in this particular tournament as their most successful/interesting types were, as far as I can see, already dealt with in T1 and in some cases these same basic types continued to serve well into the period covered by T2.
However, east Asian warships are certainly planned to make a return appearance in T3 and T4.

A substantial proportion of the warships will be of same basic class or type but with variations from one nation to another or one time to another.
The 74 will of course be culled down to the required 64 for the tournament.
(Starting with a small surplus of types allows me to remove some if I find insufficient information or if I can't get reasonable pictures).

I'm busy gathering and editing more images at this point and will need a lot more still, which will keep me occupied for a while yet.
Then after the final cull, it's the writing-up for each of the 64, and working out the initial pairings.

Will keep folks posted on my progress from time to time.
HI Paul, was wondering if I was missing something but see you are still deeply involved. Cheers, lcm1

No problem.
I'll make sure everyone knows when it's ready to start.
In the meantime, I've been continuing to gather some darned fine pictures!
