The time between 1600 and 1650.

This is the period of time Im looking at.
This is what I want to study, what I would like to understand more.
And regarding ship development little is known about that time.

Much less than about the time from 1650 to 1700.

The time before these categories 1-6 even existed.
As thats the time when these categories where developed.
We know why they did it and what was the result of that development -
- but who did it?

And how did they achieve that?
Which unknown steps - and also failures - had to be taken?

We could call them the "missing links" of historical ship development:
"Frigates" - merchant ships or pirate ships of/around 500 metric tons displacement from 1600 to 1650 - thats what I would like to have/get/build.

If you have any helpfull informations, plans or linedrawings you would sell to me - or any other useful tip, a link or whatever - please tell me.
