Mamoli Halifax
Born as packet-boat, Halifax was purchased in 1768 by the Royal Navy and transformed at Portsmouth into a typical colonial schooner of the time. These alterations included raising the cabin platform to obtain more storage space below, elevating the bulwarks with openings for the 6 guns and building a new railing with 6 culverins. The outer changes made to the hull as well as to masting and rigging altered deeply the original aspect.
