Sievers, he moved from Revel to Copenhagen, then from 5 (16) to 14 (25) August, under the flag of Peter I and headed the combined Russian-Danish-Dutch-English fleet sailing to the Baltic Sea, and on October 22 (November 2) returned to Revel for the wintering in the squadron of captain-commander V.

Apraksin, who from 4 (15) June to 16 (27) July went on a cruise voyage to the Swedish coast and carried out a landing of Russian troops on Gotland. In July and August of the following 1718, under the flag of Peter I, he headed the cruising voyages of ships of the Russian fleet in the Gulf of Finland.

According to the decree of Peter I, the ship "Ingermanland" was supposed to be saved "for memory", in connection with which he had been in Kronstadt since 1725 and did not go out to sea, and in 1727 underwent repairs. According to some sources, the ship as of 1735 was filled with water due to the rotten hull and was stranded in the Kronstadt harbor in a semi-submerged condition, and in 1736 was dismantled according to another version of the Ingermanland sank in the Kronstadt harbor in 1738 and dismantled only after 1739.
