18th Century Schooner 'Sultana'
- For period ship lovers. The current issue of "Wooden Boat"
(March-April, 2002) has an article on the building of a replica of the
18th century schooner "Sultana". The ship was built in Boston in 1767,
sailed across to Britain and sold there in 1768. She spent the next
five years in service in the Royal Navy, mostly patrolling the American
coast. She is a beautiful vessel, and reproduced as near to authentic
as modern regulations will allow. The article is excellent. Highly
