Surviving crew lists and official logs of Scottish-registered vessels for 1864 are held as follows:

Surviving official logs are always to be found with the appropriate crew lists. Deck (sailing) logs were the property of the vessel owners and were not surrendered to government authorities; very few of these logs survive.

Lloyd’s List

I have done an extensive search for copies of Lloyd’s List in U.S. libraries and the only U.S. library that *might possibly* have copies for the years in which you are interested is the Library of Congress, Serials & Government Publications Division. In fact, I am almost certain it does *not* have issues for 1854–1866, but the OPAC catalogue entries contain so little information it is difficult to tell for certain precisely what the LOC’s holdings of Lloyd’s List are. However, all LOC’s holdings of Lloyd’s List for which I am unable to determine a date are on microfilm, and the catalogue of the British Library Newspaper Library (the source for all of LOC’s microfilms of British newspapers) indicates no microfilm copies of Lloyd’s List for 1851-1913 (see my account of LLoyd’s List on the Mariners–L website. For a definitive answer, contact The Serials & Government Publications Division, LOC.

Barnard, John E., Building Britain’s Wooden Walls "The Barnard Dynasty c. 1697 - 1851", [Barnard Publications, PO Box 19, Temple Guiting GL54 5RP, U.K., 1997, ISBN 0 904614 63 8.]; LC – , DW – , MM –
This book looks interesting for insights to the construction of wooden vessels. This company built for the Royal Navy and the Honourable East India Company. For both these customers, quality would have taken precedence over economics. BNA vessels were built almost exclusively of green wood cut during the winter and used in the summer. Oak was rare in the Canadian Maritimes and rare in Canadian vessels outside of those built in Quebec where some native oak could be found. In the early 19th Century, BNA vessels built for sale in Britain did not have a reputation for quality. By mid century BNA vessels were quality built and had useful lives that approached 30 years using native unseasoned wood.
