The steam battery Demologos (also refereed to as the Fulton for her designer).  An interesting center paddlewheel steamer.  Lived a rather mundane existence for the US Navy.

Wayne, you are correct, it is the USS Fulton.

 

Designed by Robert Fulton as Demologos, Congress authorized her construction during the War of 1812. Commissioned as Fulton after Fulton's death, she made successful trial runs in the summer of 1815. The two masts and lateen sails were added by her first captain, David Porter. With the end of the war it was decided not to fully outfit her for her intended duty as a port defense battery ship. Her one day of active service occurred with President James Monroe on board for a tour of New York Harbor before she was placed in ordinary in 1816. In 1825, she was housed over and used as a receiving/barracks ship until she was destroyed by a magazine explosion in 1829, killing 30 men.

 

Fulton was the first steam warship (and one of only a handful of steam ships that actually worked) and demonstrated a future for naval warfare in which warships would be able to operate independently of the wind. It took another 30 years and several other inventions (like the screw propeller) before steam warships began to realize their potential. A few, at least, recognized what they saw during Fulton's trials, in spite of its flaws, and called this ship "Fulton the First".

 

Your turn, Wayne

This has to be the weirdest method I have used to date to find a ship..

 

Step 1   try identify an odd flag

Step 2   Google '13 vertical stripe flag with odd shape in top left'

Step 3   Have no luck

Step 4   Eventually find US Coastguard flag, but seems to have too many vertical stripes, keep looking and find Old US Coastguard flag with 13 stripes.. utter word 'Hmmmm.. I wonder'

Step 5  Google US Coastguard and find its history goes back to Revenue Cutter Service and US Lifesaving Service

Step 6  Google US Lifesaving Service.. zilch

Step 7  Google US Revenue Cutter Service, go into 'images' of same, to find examples of the flag

Step 8  Up pops our boat when I find a ship that looks kinda similar!

 

Phew....

 

Answer: is it  U.S. Revenue Cutter Corwin ?

 

Brilliant Question and beautiful boat Wayne

Well played, Eamonn!  It is, indeed, the USRC Thomas Corwin

 

The U.S. Revenue Marine Steamer Thomas Corwin, also known as simply Corwin, was completed in 1876 and was commissioned on 17 July 1877 in San Francisco, California, which remained her home port during her career with the Revenue Marine.  She was then under the command of Revenue Captain J. W. White.  She sailed for Sitka, Alaska on 30 July 1877 where she began a patrol in the Arctic Ocean, returning to San Francisco on 28 August 1877.

She then made annual cruises to Alaskan waters.  She also patrolled the waters off Washington and Oregon when not in the Arctic.  She enforced fishing regulations, customs laws, prevented the trafficking of liquor with the local native populations, established the authority of the U.S. Government on the new territory, and assisted mariners in distress, among other duties.

 

On 9 April 1898 Corwin was transferred to the United States Navy during the Spanish-American War.  She served in the San Diego, California area until 15 August 1898 when she was returned to the Treasury Department.

 

She was sold on 14 February 1900 for $16,500.  She was used as a merchant vessel after her sale and continued sailing the Bering Sea on a charter basis.

 

She was a topsail schooner with an inverted cylinder steam engine; single propeller

 

Your turn!

Thanks Wayne, that flag had ne going in circles there for a while (did you know there is an online 'Flag Finder' where you hit on-screen 'buttons' to help narrow down the search? I found it when typing '...Odd Flag' see my answer above for the rest :) BTW Flag 'Finder' didn't :P

 

Anyhoo here are 2 pictures of a certain ship, I don't want the Class just this specific ship.

 

Only hint you are getting is that she is still with us!

Assume you mean the laker being launched, not the tugs or small craft?  :huh: :huh:

 

Gee - a Laker - that was unexpected! :P :P :P :P

Well.. I was thinking to guess the name of that rowing skiff in the bottom centre just off the bow of that steam tug.... :P :D

But, yeah, the laker will do just fine. ;)

Lemoyne (1926-1969) for many years was the largest bulk carrier on the Lakes and the first with a beam of 70 feet.

Yup!
Launched as Glenmohr, but renamed right after launching. Also the first commercial vessel to transit the current Welland Canal in 1932.

Andy

And at the time of launch, the name was mis-spelled as GLENMHOR (I found the pictures on boatnerd.com once I had a name!!!)

Two days and no guesses.  :(

 

She's a US Navy side-wheel steamer with four stacks arranged in a rectangular pattern. Three drawings of her in this early configuration were made over 100 years later and were based on written descriptions and a simple contemporary line drawing. Two of those three are from the beam and fail to show the four stacks; the third reconstruction drawing is from the port bow and clearly shows four. She was extensively rebuilt several years later into a more familiar and better documented configuration with one stack.

USS Fulton II is correct.

 

Fulton II was the second steam powered vessel in the US Navy, built in 1837 as a harbor defense vessel and placed in ordinary in 1842 when she was determined to be unsuitable for the cruising role of the Navy at that time. She was rebuilt and her machinery replaced in 1851 for blue water service, a role in which she served until laid up in ordinary in 1859. Fulton II remained in Pensacola Navy Yard until seized by Florida officials after Florida seceded from the Union in 1861 and was burned there in 1862 before Union forces recaptured the yard.
