A relatively small deep water draught and heavily armed snow, built like her much bigger seagoing cousins. Stern and quarters unusually handsome and elegant, decorations kept to a minimum as per colonial fashion of the day. She represents the vessel as she was originally drawn up by the British Admiralty, built at Carleton Island in 1779 and as she rests, unusually well-preserved, at the bottom of Lake Ontario.
She has been pieced together from the original Admiralty drawings and information from the actual wreck. Artfully reconstructed by The Art of Age of Sail .
