The Cruise of Privateer Lynx

THE SHIPYARD

Although Portsmouth is technically her home, Portsmouth has not seen the Privateer Lynx in years. Launched in Maine in 2001, the replica of a local privateering ship cruises the waters of the world. We received a few photos from the designer recently (read on)

 

 

 

 

Jump to Lynx in Portsmouth

Letter from Melbourne Smith

Melbourne Smith, designer of the Pirvateer Lynx, sent us the following pictures in a recent email. They show the Lynx, built at Maine in 2001, cutting through the waves in San Francisco Bay in the spring of 2008. We haven’t been aboard the Lynx since she was here in 2001, after naming Portsmouth, NH as her home port. Now she has carried the name of New Hampshire’s only seaport to the other end of the nation.

In honor of that accomplishment, we have again posted the pictures from the 2001 visit below. And we set up a special page recapping the making of the Privateer Lynx. (Click here).

Astute readers may recall that Portsmouth dreamed of rebuilding the frigate RANGER, first built on the Piscataqua in 1777 and taken to England by John Paul Jones. The replica was never built. Or should we say – has not happened yet? During that hopeful time, Melbourne Smith visited the Port City and we toured him through the John Paul Jones House Museum. That story too has been reprinted for your reading pleasure (click here). -- JDR
