Black Prince

 

In 1795, while he was Ambassador to France, Ben Franklin purchased a small French schooner. He manned the vessel with Portuguese sailors, but appointed an American captain.  The ship was nearly invisible at night, as she was painted black above the waterline. Franklin aptly named her Black Prince and sent her to raid British merchant shipping. Black Prince gained a reputation as a courageous privateer, taking prizes in the English Channel and even attacking British ships in their home ports. the prizes and booty she captured were sent home to the Colonies to help win the War for Independence.

Sloop William

 

Anne Bonny is probably the most famous female pirate to sail the Spanish Main.  She is most famous for her words when her husband Calico Jack was granted permission to see her the last time on the night before his execution.  She scolded him: "I'm sorry to see you here, Jack, but if you'd have fought like a man you needn't hang like a dog."

XEBEC
pirate ship

 

Sea-going Mediterranean peoples greatly favored xebecs as corsairs.  The corsairs built their xebecs with a narrow floor to achieve a higher speed than their victims, but with a considerable beam in order to enable them to carry an extensive sail-plan.  The lateen rig of the xebec allowed the ship to sail close hauled to the wind, something that often give it an advantage in pursuit or escape.
