Widgeon

 

(SwStr: t. [645]; l. 225'; b. 24'; dph. 11'; dr. 6'; cl. Curlew)

 

Widgeon was the third of four sisters launched the same day in 1865 for the Confederate Navy at Liverpool in the Jones, Quiggin yard. It is doubtful whether this Hull No. 179 or any of the other three ever reached the Confederacy before hostilities ceased.
