By Model Shipways##xA0; - Wood and Metal Kit. A Historic Vessel Translated Into An Extraordinary Scale Model.The Boat That Sunk The Albemarle. Picket Boat #1, a steam launch, was built in 1864 to support of the U. Navy's blockade of the Confederacy. Outfitted with a spar-torpedo, she could also attack larger enemy vessels. On the dark night of 27-28 October 1864, Lieutenant William B.
Cushing and his crew took Picket Boat Number One up river to Plymouth, North Carolina. In one of the Civil War's most daring naval actions, they attacked the Confederate ironclad Albemarle, sinking it with the spar torpedo. Cushing and one other man escaped, and Picket Boat Number One was lost, but the Union forces on the North Carolina sounds were freed of the great threat presented by the continued existence of the Albemarle.
