ABSTRACT
The article discusses the creation of a state-of-the-art fighting ship by English shipbuilder John Hawkins. One he returned to England, Hawkins decided that war with Spain was inevitable and that he needed to help Elizabeth prepare the Navy Royal for the coming fight, and that his experience could be used to help create an improved type of warship. In 1570, Hawkins entered into partnership with master shipwright Richard Chapman, and together they designed a small, 300-ton galleon called Foresight.
