I am presenting to you all my latest build: Æneias, an Iris class french schooner from around 1820. She is a 14-gun gaff-rigged schooner based on the plans of La Recouvrance, a well-known vessel which sails from Brest. I have followed both the lines and the rigging of the original ship, since I had abundant free plans.There were 5 Iris-class vessels and they were originally used for mail-transport and latter for protection of merchant ships.
In case anyone is wandering, the name is from the classical hero Aeneas which is said to have founded Rome (go remember school stuff! ), though I have chosen to write the name in latin.
