Brig Fair American - semi-assembled wooden sailing ship model - Model
Shipways Kit

Several brigs bore the name Fair American during the American Revolutionary
War and operated as privateers (legalized pirates). One operated out of
South Carolina in 1776, another out of Philadelphia in 1778. One of them
was eventually captured by the British, and sold to be a Loyalist privateer
out of New York. The Naval Academy owns a painting of her stuck on a sandbar
during a battle in the Delaware in 1782.
