Hercules

 

(ScStr: t. 515; l. 170'; b. 25'; dph. 12'6"; dr. 7'6"; s. 12 k.; a. 1 9" r., 1 8" r.)

 

Hercules was building on the Clyde at Denny's and presumably nearly finished at war's end in 1865 [v. Ajax supra].

 

(N.B.: Not to be in any way confused with the tug Hercules which delivered arms to Alabama in Beaumaris Bay, Wales, in July 1862).
