I was doing more research for my novel, MacMillan Judge, Privateer, when I came across a boat very similar to Judge’s Fletcher. The name of this vessel is the Lynx, and it is modeled after a privateer from the War of 1812. It was built in 2001. Here is the link to their website: PrivateerLynx.com. It is definitely worth a visit to see this amazing piece of American History in action. My hat is off to the people who make such things possible.
Enjoy and look for this novel in a couple of years.
