    You're putting me in the mood to try painting again Clancy . I might try # 67.

    Are you sure about the Lady Washington painting ? The current one is a brig I believe. The one shown looks more like the Sloop[ Providence.

    The brig Lady washington was originally built as the sloop Washington in 1750.
    After serving as a merchant vessel for several years, the Washington was refitted as a privateer in 1776. Many merchants went into that business, for as the war went on, trade goods such as sugar and coffee became scarce. There was a lot of money to be had in privateering, as well as the patriotic pride of helping the Colonial cause.
    In order to avoid further confusion she was renamed Lady Washington from her original name of "Washington" which had suddenly become rather popular.
    In 1789 the sloop was refitted as a brig.

    I guess there was a lot of rig changes just like today. The current Sloop Providence had a lot of look a likes in their day as well.

    Hunt, Geoff-Star Clipper - oil on canvas

    Star Clipper off Martinique, West Indies

    'A pleasant reminder that not all tall ships belong to history. Star Clipper and her identical sister-ship Star Flyer are purpose-built cruise ships, designed to carry about 150 passengers in great luxury, but they are also true sailing ships, four-masted barquentines...In the distance is the staysail schooner Gloria; beyond her lies the isolated Diamond Rock...The land beyond is Martinique, then as now a French possession.'

    Another fine collection Clancy , thanks.

    # 77 shows the Chinese trackers pulling the water craft up the Yang-see must have been something to see in the old days. I understand they pulled up some of the Tea clippers as well. What a tough way to make a living.

    I may just print em all and and paper a room with them.

    I think Maiden Lane is now South Street Seaport. In one moonlit scene painting John Stobart did If you looked real close there was a hooker and a sailor in one window.

    Several of his paintings had a liquor bottle on board, just innocently off in one corner.
