Otago SV 1869 - Robert Duncan & Co

Post by Woody » Fri Jul 13, 2012 4:32 pm

Launched by Robert Duncan & Co Port Glasgow, Yard No 42, in September 1869 for P Henderson & Co Glasgow
Three Masted Composite Sailing Vessel
1050t

There are two vessels of the same name and year in the database. I believe this is the larger vessel
Does anyone have a launch date and more details?

Woody,
This OTAGO was launched in August 1869, by (as you say) R. Duncan. Tonnage 1,050.
Torpedoed by U20 17/11.16 off Canary Islands.
