Subject: Algerian "Navy" 1732

I posted this message on the Threedecks forum but don't know whether everyone who used to contribute here has abandoned this board.

I need a list of Algerian armed ships or "warships" in 1732.

I am preparing a paper on Spanish use of sea power, 173248, for the biennial Naval History Symposium at the U.S. Naval Academy. Although the Spanish expedition to seize Oran (or reconquer as the Spanish called it, since they had held it nearly 200 years, 15091708) was not contested at sea, I would like to be able to compare the Spanish covering battle force with what the Spanish could have faced.

I have a list of the Algerian "marine" about 1725 from a Spanish translation of M. Laugier de Tassy, Histoire du Royaume d'Alger (Amsterdam: Henri du Sauzet,1725), which I will be happy to share, but I don't know how many of those ships were still extant seven years later (the list was recent; some of the ships had building dates of 172122).

I must submit the paper to other panel members and the commentator by August 15 and would therefore need the information sooner.
