Her crew complement in the 1650's (150+) means she fits into the 1653 fourth rate category (140-199).
Although by 1685 she would indeed be a fifth rate on guns carried.

5th rate probably

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
