VIDEO CORRECTIONS: Feel free to add your knowledge to this comment thread. Remember, teaching others your precious knowledge is a lovely thing and is best done with patience, and not excess sharpness. Some viewers have already pointed out that: - "battleship" is a modern term not applicable to old ships like this. - The boat is a "Pinnace", not pinnacle - Proper old English terms like fo'c'sle (forecastle), which we are aware of but which I omitted in the final script. - The Grand Magazine had light rooms nearby as well, like the hanging magazines. That is, they had separate rooms with lanterns behind glass for protection. - Apparently the yard isn't in the correct spot when hoisted, but I'll be damned if I could find info on just how that should have been situated when I was animating it! - The audio isn't the greatest. I know. I was being lazy, and I'll do better next time and give myself the proper time to get it right. I just dislike that part of the project. I've got a proper setup though, it's not my gear. Classic.

from user "edl617": Not a battleship. It’s a Ship of the Line. The Battleline which Is made of of ships of the line. The British Royal Navy rated ships of the line. 6th rate, 5th rate, 4th rate, 3rd Rate, 2nd Rate, and 1st Rate like the HMS Victoria. British Frigates had between 28 to 40 guns, then ships of the line 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 guns

I'm a much older man and remember when color TV first came out. Yes, I'm that old. Anyway, it's a real pleasure to see an intelligent and gifted young person turn his talents to interesting subjects as you have done. I especially liked your videos on the WW2 aircraft but the others are great too. Fascinating. I grew up playing with those airplane models and you've done a fine job of explaining everything about them. I had a model of HMS Victory ages and ages ago. Fascinating. It's a shame to lose that tech from bygone days but time moves on. Well, keep on doing your best and follow your bliss and you can't go wrong.

When I was a kid, I built a plastic model of the Mayflower, one of the ships that brought the Pilgrims to America. You don't know just how many ropes and lines there are until you build a ship, whether it's an accurate model or a real ship. My dad never needed to help with any of my modelling because he and my mother made sure that each of us kids learned early how to read and follow an assembly guide. Dad did help me when it came time to mix paint colors for small one-off batches so that I didn't have to buy a whole bottle of paint for each of the very minor colors in any given model, only to use just a few drops for a part that was supposed to look like oak, or another part that was supposed to look like an off-white railing or something. LOL, all on my paperboy income, hehe! Oak is a tan color, while Mahogany is a darker brown. Once you know how to make the off-colors from your bottles of common colors, that gives you the real power of creativity. Today there's probably an app for that, right?

When it comes to warships, a phrase comes in mind, the more things change, the more they stay the same, sure in modern warships we have dedicated crew quarters, kitchens and such but a bilge pump and a water condenser and such as well as ammo storage still stays the same. Plus a random tidbit, despite the invention of brass cartridges when steel hull ships are being built, the cannon shells were dropped and instead are loaded via a block or sack of gunpowder, or another way. However the same aspect that still stays the same, despite materials and tech that changed, the idea and lay outs are still beyond similar.

As someone who has done 3D computer modeling work for many years, I must say this is astounding work. It epitomizes the powerful teaching potential of computer animation, and fulfills the dreams of people using the technology in the early years. The entire production is seamless and powerful. Makes the delivery of highly detailed and complex information seem easy and effortless, when it takes amazing skill to pull it off. Congratulations and Cheers

@Dan Gee We are nowhere near AI having the capability to reproduce Animagraff level quality, and when AI does reach that level, things will look different for all of us so I'll live out that reality when it comes. No worries. AI has proved useful to me right now, but in a serving capacity, and only if I know a lot about the subject so I can spot AI's many hallucinations, aka "making s**t up". It can be useful for writing code to improve my Blender 3D toolset, and yet, it often makes up commands that don't exist, or writes code that doesn't work, because at this point I often find myself deep into Blender's internals where synthesizing all of Stackoverflow (what AI has done, essentially) isn't going to help me since no one's talking about my specific use case.

Historically accurate fiction, on which the movie Master and Commander was based. All of this terminology contained in this video is constantly being referred to in the novels. Thank you so much!

Wow, this 18th century warship is a true masterpiece of engineering and design. It's amazing to see how sailors from the past managed to build and operate such a complex vessel with only their hands and basic tools. This ship truly embodies the spirit of exploration, adventure, and bravery that defined the age of sail. I can only imagine what it would have been like to sail on this ship and engage in epic battles on the high seas. Truly a piece of history that deserves to be preserved and celebrated!

"epic battles" were more like incoherent massacres of the poor youth of their respective country. Let's not romantisize naval war too much, living several months or years at a time on these ships was hell, let alone fighting in it, where it became an over-engineered casket.

@Joshua Rosemann I Massacres only happened on boardings. Not sure about 18th century, but at leat until the 16th on the warships that engaged in "massacres" there were professional soldiers, who definately weren't innocent. I think the guy was just admiring the sheer brilliance of the 18th century warships and how despite lack of technology, they were still prepared for basically any practical scenario at the time.

@Electric Speedkiller i as much as him am amazed by the advancement in naval transport technology and i think that ship is amazing. I would love to visit a real ship of this type one day let alone go on a voyage on one. Not so far of where i live there's a reconstruction of a roman ship wchich design is more than 2000 years old. It is fascinating that it basically used the exact same materials and mechanical systems (i.e the ropes, sails, shape and structure of the ship), minus the canons of course. The only real change is the complexity and sheer size and mass of the object (altough roman ships of similar grandeur existed). Anyway you're partly right, i'm just skeptical when i see someone idolizing something that underneath the impressive first glance, is just a giant war machine designed to destroy and take as many lives as possible and on which countless people drowned, died of sickness, of famine, were torn apart in explosions or died trying to fight for better conditions. Life on these ships was really hard. No privacy, tiny spaces with little to no light cramed with hundreds of unknown man, the hygiene was terrible, the weather unpredictible, the job itself often dangerous and the pay mostly miserable (depending on the position and time). Not to say all these men were innocent, but all were generally really young, with little to no other choices, on which the national and private marines relied on as disposable. If we ignore that we don't do justice to these men and we learn nothing from history.

If you’re into reading, there’s three great novel series set during this time in the Royal Navy. Hornblower, by C.S. Forester, there’s also a series of TV movies based off some of the novels, and a 50s classic Hollywood film “Captain Horatio Hornblower” starring Gregory Peck, based off some of the later novels (Peck can’t do a British accent to save his life by the way). The Aubrey-Maturin series, by Patrick O’Brian, which provided the base material for the 2003 Oscar-winning masterpiece of a film “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”. And lastly, the “Lord Ramage” series of novels.

I can understand and agree with your admiration from an engineering perspective. But that other guy had a point when he called out the glorification of ship to ship combat. Combat during the age of sail was gruesome, even at cannon range. Consider that grapeshot (shotgun) was common and chain shot, while meant for masts, would often take any unfortunate sailors in front of their target with them. Usually to messy results.

When you see the rudimentary instruments used in those days you can understand why carpentry was such a big thing!

@KZhome Anything We still use wood in many watermanagement applications today. Like in groynes to keep rivers from miandering in corners and near sluice gates or even just to provide support to other wooden structures in case of collision when docking near them minimalising damaga to ships, just to name a few. The thing with proper wood you have to deal with mostly has to do with oxidation. The layer that might be both in and out of the water at certain times. This can be managed by regulating the water level and treating and of course properly maintaining those structures. Here in the Netherlands, river sluice gates are made of out wood some of the time to this day. I've personally even visited a company that made one for a sluice in Zaandam once some years ago. I have pictures somewhere, but they were something like 10 meters or 30 feet in height. It's still something reliable as a material, similar to steel depending on the application. Just like wood, steel needs to be treated and maintened properly. It's not a one for all purposes wonder-material. On top of that, determining the strength on the characteristics of some wooden structure is not that different from the difficulty the strength of pouring, casting, soldering, welding etc would be. It takes knowledge and tools either way. Hope this gave you some insight. If you really want to dive deep, look up some stuff about material mechanics. :)

@LSR that's some dense infos! thanks! can you tell me how they manage to prolong the wood at the point where they hook the beefy ropes of anchors? They literally pull it while sliding rope into wood. That's so much pressure..

This was very informative. I've always been completely ignorant of how the rigging worked. Your simple breakdown of the workings of just the one sail was exactly what I needed.

You sir, did a fantastic job with this video. It doesn’t even deserve to be on KZhome. It should be in a museum where you get paid royalties for every play. Furthermore, the complexity of these ships is astounding. To tour one is a dream of mine but I don’t know if there are any that are still around to see. This video, in a way, made the dream real. For that I thank you to the creator.

Yea they wouldn't, they don't even know what a video is. Once explained they would propably appreciate it, and think it's nice how someone spend time on working out one of their designs so far in the future, but "appreciate it more than words can even describe"? Hell no. This video wasn't their life purpose. They just did their job and designed a ship. They probably designed a ton of projects in their lifetime. They would care a lot more about suddenly being 200+ years in the future and finding out how the world developed, how history went down, how their distant family is doing and what new technologies are around.

Exceptionally informative, with some incredible details. I love the explanation of the pumps, and the inclusion of the condenser (I always wondered if there were other ways to obtain fresh water onboard), and particularly the details of the interior walls that can be lifted out of the way to clear space on the lower decks. Really well-done work, and I feel like you could easily extend this for another 30 minutes just on operations and POV shots

steve jette I was introduced to the Regina Maris by the novel Tuning the Rig by Harvey Oxenhorn. I stumbled across her when by chance in the late 90s I was in Greenport NY and walked by her. I had finished reading the book just weeks prior and was stunned to just happen by her like that. She was closed for repairs, so I left a donation and moved on. I was dissapointed to read of her being scrapped. Congratulations on being so blessed to have sailed aboard her.

Imagine having to organise a crew of over 700 souls (74 gun 3rd rates) or 900 in the case of 100 gun 1st rates like Victory. It must have needed constant drilling and iron discipline to whip a crew like that into a well oiled machine for battle, hauling in or unfurling the sails, or dropping and weighing anchor.

Before watching this I was completely clueless as to the massive scale these things were and even more clueless on the level of genius engineering that went into these things. And the level of detail you included and along with the narration that made the info very approachable and easy to understand. Best educational content on this subject that I have ever seen.

The competency to sail these just have been something to behold. Despite being made of wood, with hundreds of tons of weight it would have been interesting how fast and efficiently it moved. Port maneuvers must have been complex with a lot of sail needed with light wind but a lot of signalling with so many ships in proximity.

Your team has set the standard that other such historical accounts must measure themselves against. This is truly a valuable contribution to the body of historical literature. I mean...damn!!!

Really neat to watch this level of detail into one of these ships. Looking back we just see them as simplistic floating pieces of wood, but now I can see how in their time they were seen as the height of modernity and engineering. This was definitely very advanced tech in 1765. I imagine the new sailors on its maiden voyage were awestruck by how advanced it was.

Ship engineering is one of the most fascinating achievements of human history. This stuff goes all the way back to some of the most early periods of history and its one of those things that the only way to know it works is to test it. In a world at the time that was still unknown it was very much a leap of faith. Then you take into account that for many of the eras they weren't exactly rolling out schematics, it was all in someone's head.
