Hi Ted,

I was obviously not the person who provided the info in the first place and I certainly do not have names of relevant ships. But I do have a description of the Spanish fleet mobilised at the end of 1674 from a Spanish source. The source is Cesáreo Fernández Duro, 'Armada española: desde la unión de los reinos de Castilla y León', 9 vols (1895-1903), vol. 5, p. 97 (my translation).

‘The Armada del Océano came from Cadiz for the same objective, including a first group of nine vessels under Admiral Don José Centeno, and a second under Captain General Don Melchor de la Cueva y Enríquez, comprising between them a force of 21 ships totalling 11819 tons, 874 guns and 6461 sailors and soldiers. The capitana real was a vessel of 1250 tons, carrying 70 guns and 892 crew, among the components being the Flanders squadron of five frigates of 450 to 550 tons and 40 to 50 guns.’
