Re: Opinions on Rosborough Privateer

Hello all, you may be interested in checking out my blog. I am restoring the 48' Rosborough schooner "Megan D", she was rotting in the water when I got her. I just completed replacing about 20 ribs and all the planks from the waterline and above. Megan D Schooner Restoration

Re: Opinions on Rosborough Privateer

I see that this is a very old thread, but is anyone still aboard here? I was captain on Rosborough 55 Aquarius three-masted barkentine, and have always wondered what happened to her. Any sightings?

Re: Opinions on Rosborough Privateer

I heard it was wrecked on a reef many years ago. I was communicating with JDR about buying the plans when he told me that.

Thanks for the sad news. She was HMS Dolphin, and she had four bronze deck guns and two swivels. I had a lot of fun on that little ship for three years. She was mahogany planked over oak frames, not the cheap pine/fir that others used. The elderly owner and I sailed her together, just the two of us, many times. Met my wife while skippering her. At first she was WAY more interested in the boat than in me, but things happened. We sailed her from Meteghan River NS to Florida and Bahamas, back to the Chesapeake, back to Florida-Bahamas, then through the Great Lakes and back south. She was sold to a California owner and sailed to San Diego, where I last saw her in 1984 or '85.
