Post Hospital Ships
I thought this was interesting. It's the Dreadnought Hospital Ship.

I've been going through various Steel's Lists and I've come across convalescent ships as well as hospital ships. Does anyone know what the difference was between the two?

Post Re: Hospital Ships
From The Ship-Master's Assistant and Owner's Manual (1795) by David Steel:

"In hospital-ships, the gun-deck is entirely set apart for the reception of the sick; it is to be flush, without cabins or bulkheads, except a deal or canvas one, for separating such as have malignant distempers: it is to contain the necessary cradles and bedding; two pair of chequered linen sheets are allowed to each bed; and scuttles must be made for inlets of the air.

"In an hospital-ship there is allowed a physician, surgeon, four mates, and six assistants, a servant to the surgeon, a baker, and four washermen."
