Did the patriots have a weak navy in the revolutionary war
No, they did not. Patriots, in other words, the colonists of the Thirteen Colonies, rebelled against British power and government during the American Revolution. These rebels declared the USA an independent nation in July 1776. At the beginning of the revolutionary war, Patriots did not have not a standing navy; however, they were skillful in building the fleet of frigates. Patriot forces mainly consisted of whaling boats, galleys, and barges.
