Designed by noted marine architect, Melbourne Smith of Annapolis, MD and built by Rockport Marine of Rockport, Maine, LYNX represents a "letter of marque" Baltimore Clipper; considered to be among the finest privateer schooners ever built.  Because of their swiftness and maneuverability, these ships were most effective as blockade runners and offensive weapons of war.
