I keep seeing the plans for Chapman's Neptunus frigate. Looking at the bow, I can't understand if it is of the beakhead bulkhead type (like the first figure I attach) or if it is without bulkhead (like the second, both taken from Robert Gardiner's book). I think, from the time the Neptunus was built and from what I indicate on the plan that it would be without a bulkhead. But before starting to build it I would like to know other opinions. Many thanks!

I just checked the Dolphin 1732
