ROSALIND, built in 1903 for the skipper William Jennings, fished drift nets for herring and mackerel. She is the sole survivor of William Paynter's St Ives built luggers.
In 1914 ROSALIND was sold to Mevagissey and her name changed to Susan Oh I Say. In 1919 she was sold to John Behenna in Mevagissey and renamed ROSALIND. In 1945 the vessel was converted in to a sailing yacht and sold to Rye.
Subsequently, she was found in 1959 on a beach in Shoreham where her engines had been pulled and she had been more or less abandoned. Her then owner refloated her again and later her brought her across the Atlantic in a shipping container to the US where she ended up on Maryland's eastern shore.
Now under new ownership, the vessel is currently located in Connecticut, USA, where she is undergoing a full restoration both to her original 1903 dipping lug rig and to as many aspects of her original configuration as practical.
