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.

PS . I have Baltimore registers from 1810, and there are no Dreadnought.

There were no any operational "Armada Nacional del Uruguay" in 1817.

"República Oriental" was a corsair (a privateer), owned by Antonio Benito Powell, captain Richard “Ricardo” Leech. 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.

"Deadnod" aka "Dreadnod" could be "Dreadnought"
