Lord Cochrane's Brig Speedy by Roy Cross. This was Cochrane's first command a 14gun brig which he had several highly successful cruises in capturing over 50 prizes including the 32 gun Spanish Zebec Gamo off Barcelona in 1801(the basis for PatrickO'Brien's first lucky Jacky Aubrey novel "Master and Commander", which includes Aubrey's capture of Spanish xebec-frigate Cacafuego, whilst commanding the Brig Sophie)


Russell Crowe (perfectly cast) as Captain Jack Aubrey in Master & Commander : The Far Side of the World (2003). Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin books are one of my favorite series.
