I can't help but notice that the ship in the foreground, and the one ahead of it, are heeling to starboard. There are lines of sailors on both ships on the starboard side. Now, if half of those blokes went over to the port side, the vessels would be less likely to heel over like that.

Just a suggestion!

It was actually quite "choppy" and the frigates were moving around a lot!

Or were they lined up on the starboard side to help the ship turn?
Like the passenger on a racing sidecar outfit.
