THe nominal number of guns when built in 1619/20 was 58. THe count of 48 is from a list of 1642. They are both correct.

The number of guns is 48 instead of 58.

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.
