The remains of this vessel were found buried as cribbing in a levee along a secondary channel of the Savannah River. The bow and most of the port side had been cut off the hull in order to make it fit into the embankment. The framing plan was reminiscent of those in ancient Mediterranean vessels; evenly spaced floor timbers and futtocks alternated with half-frames and futtocks. An athwartships mast step was located far forward. <sup.1</sup>
