My best information is as follows, as of February 1741:

French (d'Antin at Port Louis)
Dauphin Royal, 74 (d'Antin)
Superbe, 74 (Roquefeuil)
Ferme, 74 (Rochalart)
Juste, Bourbon, Lys, 74
Achille, 64
Conquérant, 68 (36#)
Ardent, Elisabeth, Éole, Fleuron, St. Louis, 64
Toulouse, 62
Content, 60
Triton, Tigre, 56
Mercure, 54
Diamant, 50
Alcyon, 50-56
Amazone, Argonaute, Gloire, Parfait, 46

In Cartagena Harbor
Galicia, 70 (Lezo) (guns mounted during British siege: 34)
San Felipe, 80 (34)
San Carlos, 66 (50)
Africa, 64 (34)

These ships were mostly in poor repair, possibly not fully rigged (except for San Felipe, which had crossed the Atlantic with Torres but was too leaky to proceed with him to Havana)

Principe, Reina, Santa Ana, 70
San Luis, 62/66
Castilla, Nueva España, Real Familia, San Antonio, Santiago, 60
At Havana
Glorioso, Invencible, 70
Fuerte, 60 (separated from Torres during trans-Atlantic voyage, proceeded indepdently directly to Havana)
Lost at Sea, August 1740
Andalucía, 62 (part of Torres' squadron when he left Ferrol)

British (Vernon at Jamaica)
Princess Caroline, 80 (Vernon)
Russell, 80 (Ogle)
Boyne, 80 (Lestock)
Chichester, Cumberland, Norfolk, Princess Amelia, Shrewsbury, Torbay, 80
Burford, Hampton Court, Orford, Prince Frederick, Suffolk, 70
Augusta, Defiance, Deptford, Dunkirk, Jersey, Lyon, Montagu, Princess Louisa, Rippon, Strafford, Tilbury, Weymouth, Windsor, Worcester, York, 60
Falmouth, Litchfield, 50

"Frigates," corvettes, sloops, bombs, fireships, and other smaller armed vessels not included.
