The Isis link does appear to be correct, no 6th Rate Isis on the site at all?

Your link to the Isis from this page is incorrect. HMS Isis commanded by Mitchel was a 4th rate 50 gun ship. You have a 28 gun 6th rate. Also the link states that the Isis was burnt in 1791 so could not have been commanded by Mitchel in 1799/98. Mitchel was aboard the Isis at St Helena in May 1798 and mentioned in a report of mutiny that took place on the eastindiaman the Worcester. See IOR/G/32/98
