Uruguay Navy was really grounded in 1817,but shortly after Montevideo was taken,so there were as far I know no any state navy. Artigas sent over 50 privateers mainly form Argentina,Some of them have both Buenos Aires & Artigas lettre of marque.1) Archivo Artigas - Vol 35 Comisión Nacional Archivo Artigas (Uruguay), Uruguay. 2) Armada Nacional: estudio histórico biográficoRepública Oriental del Uruguay, 1977PS . I have Baltimore registers from 1810, and there are no Dreadnought.

Former Baltimore schooner "Deadnod" . Captured 4 prizes. Listed as sailed 21 Nov 1816 from Montevideo.Ricardo Leech was a captain of a Argentine brig Nancy in 1814.
