According to the book The Frigate Surprise their was 6 boats on board the vessel,

1 Lunch
1 Pinnacle
1 Jolly-boat
2 Cutters
1 Skiff

These was used in the capture of the Hermione on 25th october 1799.
I was wondering how many of these boats are included with the build and also any idea as the how they was all stowed on board as i have all plans of Suprise and L'Unite but it gives no indecation as to how they was kept on board.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Builds in progress: HMS Victory.HMS Surprise.
Completed builds: Revell London Bus 1/24.
Builds to do:Sovereign of the seas, Hms Albion.
