  1. It took a Tribeca resident to identify the ship. This is fantastic research. Please note the use of the word, “likely” in the report. My agent has my completed manuscript for my book, which names the identity of the ship, her controversies, and the identity of her owner and investors. The place, the location of the trees used to build the ship is correct, but the date noted is slightly off. It will be fascinating comparing the tree-dating research to extensive historical research of New York’s coastline in that era.
