In the age of sail, the boats carried by the men-of-war were an essential part of the ships outfitting. They were necessary to move stores, act as the engine in confined waters, serve as amphibious raiders, and even to cruise independently as tenders to the mother ship. Over the centuries there have been many sizes, hull forms, and rigs employed, so the exact details proved a problem for model makers, marine artists, and builders of replicas.
