The schooner DOS AMIGOS


The DOS AMIGOS was a US slaver that was rigged as a brigantine schooner. Like most slave ships she was a very fast ship. In 1830 she was captured by the British Royal Navy and refitted as a anti-slave patrol vessel. From that time, 1832, a complete set of actual design plans have survived.
