Hi Ted,

I have this information from a Spanish forum (foroavante.es if I am not mistaken, as now I cannot access it because I am at sea) and did not have time to translate all of it:

"En octubre de 1674 llegan a Sicilia 20 barcos:la mayoría galeones y fragatas, 2 pataches y 2 brulotes. A principios de de 1675 se les añade otro navìo llegando a 21 barcos.
En enero de 1675 el navío LA GALLARDA dió al través en las aguas de la Torre del Faro y los dos brulotes se quemaron sin fruto.
LLega un segundo socorro francés de 21 velas que pilla desprevenida a la armada española que sale a interceptarlo. El 11 de febrero se produce el combate de Stromboli entre esta isla y el cabo Raiscolmo. Varios barcos que salen de Mesina deciden el combate del lado francés que captura la fragata española NUESTRA SEÑORA DEL POPULO (400-420 Tn) e introduce el socorro en la ciudad. La armada española debe ir a reparar y carenar a Nápoles.
En julio de 1675 tras la carena la armada se compone de 15 barcos y 2 pataches de fuego:
-SANTIAGO galeón Capitana Real de la AMO (1250 Tn); SANTA ANA galeón Almiranta Real de la AMO (934 Tn); NS DE LA ALMUDENA galeón (823 Tn); SAN JOSE galeón (664 Tn); SAN BERNARDO galeón (825 Tn); SAN ANTONIO de Napoles fragata (600 Tn); NS DE LA CONCEPCIÓN de Napoles fragata (500 Tn); NS DE LA CONCEPCIÓN de Barcelona fragata (600 Tn); SAN FELIPE fragata (600 Tn); SAN CARLOS fragata Capitana de Flandes (550 Tn); JESUS MARÍA fragata Almiranta de Flandes (400 Tn); SAN SALVADOR fragata (550 Tn); SAN IGNACIO fragata (450 Tn); NS DEL ROSARIO de Flandes fragata (350 Tn); NS DE GRACIA Y SAN FRANCISCO DE ASÍS patache(brulote); y EL ROSARIO de Vizcaya patache(brulote).
El 5 de noviembre de 1675 una tempestad en el Faro de Mesina provoca la pérdida de 5 navíos y un patache de fuego (SAN FRANCISCO, CONCEPCION de Barcelona, JESUS MARÍA, SAN JOSE, NS DE LA ALMUDENA y EL ROSARIO de Vizcaya)
Días después el Marqués de Orani con 9 galeras recupera la fragata NS DEL POPULO a los franceses."

We can assume that the 15 ships and 2 fireships in Naples in July 1675 all took part at the First Battle of Stromboli from February.

In the battle only the N.S. del Pueblo (44 guns, 200 men, 500 tons) was captured by French, but was a few days later recaptured by Spanish galleys. This ship is the 1672 Madona del Populo of 36-44 canons.

Whole figures of armament and crew are In " Hollandse Mercurius " 1672 the list of the Spanish fleet in Cadiz in the September, 1672, expected arrival Flota is resulted; I managed to identify all the s; obviously, all of them, or nearly so everything, participated in the mentioned battle:
GUNS CREW THE TONNAGE
Capitana Real - Nuestra Señora del Pilar 70 960 1215
Almiranta Real - Santa Ana 54 700 950
San Pedro 54 410 800
