Fascinating detail. I am interested in what a ship of this scale looked like. If you can direct me to any images, I would be most grateful. Happy 2022!

What year are you referring to. Probably isn't this vessel as it belongs to the Dutch Navy and wouldn't regularly carry passengers and certainly not slaves.
