The bomb vessel Granado was launched on 22nd june 1742. Her construction work was overseen by the great naval surveyor and architect Thomas Slade , who later designed Nelson's Victory. Granado's lines (and very uncommon carving work for such a vessel) suggests she was originally intended as a sloop. For the first 14 years of her operational career , Granado was indeed fitted out as a sloop not a bomb vessel. It wasn't until July 1756 that Granado was converted to her original role of bomb vessel , in which she performed her duties admirably. She was finally paid off and sold for £575 in June 1763
