Yes, the books on Agamemnon and Bellerophon are excellent and most entertaining.
If you have not already come across Peter Goodwin’s “Nelson’s Ships” (Chatham 2002), this very detailed history of the thirty seven ships that Nelson served in, based upon their logs, is an important work for the student of the period. One gets a very clear impression of the complex life aboard ships of the Georgian navy.
