Notes on Ship


DesignE-WIKI

Garnier designed Ligurienne to plans by François-Frédéric Poncet, following the design specifications of General Napoléon Bonaparte . What Napoleon wanted was a ship whose hull could be split into eight sections , joined by screw bolts so that she could be dismantled , carried in 10 wagons over land , and then be re-assembled on reaching water again . This would permit the French to transfer the ship from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea , there being no Suez Canal at the time . She had 16 gun-ports , and seven small ports for oars .
