I'm a bit concerned about some of this stuff on this page, and the other HMS pages. A lot of it seems to be based on the real history. Will this is probably ok, for stuff like dimensions and so on, there's no way to tell if any of it will be accurate for things like the end fate of a ship.

Take this one for example, it's mentioned here as part of the Danish blockade, which we can't know for certain took place. Nelson mentioned it as a possibility at the abolition society gathering, but as Nelson was in our timeline dead at this point I think it's pretty clear how up in the air this all is.

I'd personally prefer it if all details that pertain to the real history were removed except where there is explicit reference in the books to the event taking place. I'm pretty sure for example that no real ships were captured by a fire breathing dragon, yet I expect the French lost quite a few like this to Ishkirka.Andrew 06:24, 26 June 2008 (PDT)
