Who built the USS Underwriter?

It is generally known that the USS Underwriter was built in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1852. The question is what was the name of the shipyard?I discussed that with a well-known naval researcher Andreas von Mach, and he told me that there were two shipyards in Brooklyn that could have built the ship - Burtis & Morgan and Joe Bloomfield. Unfortunately, he does not have complete ship lists for these two, so there is no definite answer.Do you have any suggestions?See More

Lee Oxford's book on the Fanny capture and the Chicamacomico Races is almost ready to go to the publisher. He's down to selecting pictures and adding some last minute finds. The publisher just upped the number he is allowed to use from 60 to 80. I take that as a good sign. I can't wait to see what he does with all the interesting tidbits he has dug up.
