- May 8 6:25 AMVery interesting, Robb, thanks for that one to add to my collection
of historic replicas at sea or in build; a nice little topsail
schooner, somewhat reminiscent of the lovely "Pride of Baltimore" or
the superb French "La Recouvrance".
Well, Sir, if I ever get "Atalanta" to sea, I shall have to fire a
Bow-Chaser, shott'd, to Bring her Too, if I can catch her!
You may be interested in another 1812 privateer on which I have in
fact sailed, this one a French cutter, the Malouin "Le Renard";
details at the site of L'Association du Cotre Corsaire,
I had the pleasure of helming her back into St-Malo last August, at
the tiller with all square canvas set as we ran into the harbour at
sunset, loosing off a shot from one of the larboard carronades as we
passed the old fort, by way of a signal. Magic.
