J.D. Davies' Gentleman Captain

There are many authors writing about the Age of Sail, but most of them concentrate their attention to the 18th century. The master of the Age of Sail genre is naturally Patrick O'Brian who brings alive the friendship between Captain Aubrey and Stephen Maturin in a way that has been never-before-seen in Literature. The only failing of the novels from my perspective is that they are set in the wrong century.
