Thanks VicMar1 for these links.
https://threedecks.org/index.php the world of sailing navies. Warships in the age of sail.

https://www.worldnavalships.com/sailship.htm This site is a good one for following what ships left the London builders yards. sort of fills in some blanks as to why they moved areas so much,although its not such a big area.

Suggestion from William Bramhill
Anyone looking for a particular ship that an ancestor sailed on should be able to find details here.

The search seems rather clunky and takes about 90s even on my fast connection, but don't give up hope.

The best way to look is to find the register for the year closest to the one you want, then search the registers for that year and those immediately preceding it.
Note that the coloured column headers give the range of years far better than the list below them. That list dynamically changes when a coloured range of years is chosen.
