Subject: Capture of Brillant 56c in 1734

I have such question: in the reference list by A. Demerliac concerning marine du roi de 1716 a 1774, there are such data regarding French SoL Brillant 56c (built 1724, # 315) that during siege of Dantzig (now – Gdansk) in 1734, this SoL Brillant was grounded in May 1734, then captured by Russians and refloated in June 1734 and in September 1734 she was taken to Copenhagen and exchanged for the captured Russian frigate Mittau. I failed to locate any confirmation of this event in the French histories of the siege of Dantzig in 1734; indeed, a hired galiot Isaac was captured by Russians, and may be she was renamed to Brillant.
Usually, Demerliac’s data are quite reliable. Is this true? If it’s so, why there are no any traces of this event?
“5.1734: Echoue devant Wexelmunde; 6.1734: Capture par les Russes et remis a flot. 9.1734: Rendu aux Francais a Copenhague contre le MITTAU”.
In Russian history there is a mentioning of a certain French “large pram”, used against batteries at Wexelmunde and later taken at Dantzig.
