Fully rigged 4pdr carriage gun. Note the unusual position of the eyebolts in the bulwark. Usually these would be fitted higher and closer together, on Granado they were fitted this way to ensure they were at the strongest point possible.

Belfry and windlass temporarily fitted. Note the belfry headstock and bell are yet to be fitted. Note also that the windlass fitted to Granado did not have a standard, allowing room for the bow chase guns.
