RATTLESNAKE - The Revolutionary War privateer Rattlesnake was designed in 1779-80 by John Peck, a Boston naval architect. The original Rattlesnake was built in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and in style resembled a miniature frigate, which had a separate quarter deck and forecastle. These features are rather unusual for a privateer.She carried up to 20 guns (probably six and nine pounders), and had a usual complement of 85 men. The original Rattlesnake was commissioned by the Continental Congress of the fledgling United St... Privateer action in the North Florida area was intense as Georgia was held by the American Patriots and Florida was held by the British. Little is known of her career except that it was brief.
Late in 1781, she was captured by the British frigate Assurance (44 guns) and taken into the Royal Navy as the Commorant (14 guns). The vessel was unusually fast, and her hull lines were recorded by the British Admiralty after her capture and have come down to us today.
