Historical background of the ship
The British cutter SHARKE was built in 1711 at the Deptford dockyards on the Thames River. She was designed for speed. With her large sail area and because of her shallow draught and minimal tonnage she could follow smugglers anywhere, even up shallow rivers and over dangerous shoals. With her ten pounder cannons she could easily fight any small boat.
