#1920 It would seem that in about 1960, a brief history booklet was privately published entitled 'Slipways to Success', the story of the 'Sunderland Shipbuilding Group'.

It would seem that George Bartram retired from business in 1871 & that after he retired the 'Bartram' business moved to what I termed on page 045 'a new shipbuilding yard' at South Dock. Agnes gigs (6 oared open boats), named Gipsy & O&M, rescued the passengers & crew & returned to salvage the cargo which included 450 (have also read 460) live cattle which had been spilled into the sea (& their handlers). on p.261), 2 (Miramar, link, you now must be registered to access). If you were to throw a jumbled up 20 foot rope into a 1 foot box, you wouldn’t say that the box is 20 feet across.You’d want to straighten the rope out before you draw any conclusions. So if the total length of the curve is L, then by adding up all the little pieces you can get a good approximation: When the lengths get very small (that is, when ), becomes , becomes , and becomes . Now you have (one version of) the arclength equation: !If you inscribe an N-gon (an N-sided polygon) into a circle, the length of it’s perimeter is: , where D is the diameter of the circle.In this case, since the higher the number of sides the n-gon has, the better it approximates the circle both in position and slope, you’ll find that as , !I wonder exactly where the 'Haswell thru to Sunderland Shipbuilding Company' yard was located? And when they acquired it, in 1955, it still had a repaired hole in the hull from the horn of one of those deranged animals.

There are words about the situation in 'Where Ships Are Born' & since those words have a relevance to this matter, I repeat them here.

This latter firm built several large iron sailing ships from 1873, among them being the Duchess of Edinburgh, Eastern Monarch, Roderick Dhu, Senator and Kingdom of Sweden, each of which was famed among the medium clippers of the period. Per 1 (thanks to Gilbert Provost), 2 (same data but with an 1884 reference? 1889), 4 (#9, which refers to a 62 day voyage from So Miguel, Portugal, to Hawaii in 1883 with 938 passengers aboard), 5 (1883/85 voyages to Australia), 6 (NY Times, Mar.

After Mounsey retired, Robert Foster continued for only a very short time and then the business passed into the hands of the Sunderland Shipbuilding Company.

So it would seem that there were 2 shipbuilders at South Dock at least from 1871? The vessel clearly travelled to Australia & to Hawaii. The approach was noticed when 2 miles out & a furious fire fight developed. It would seem that 4 were killed in the engagement including 2 of the Fukui Maru's crew; Lieutenant-Commander Hirose Takao & a warrant officer (Sugino) responsible for the firing of the sinking charge. Takao was posthumously decorated & a statue was erected to his memory in Tokyo. John Fowles, in 'Shipwreck', advises that 'cattle-ship wrecks were popular with the islanders, since salvage money ran as high as 5 a head. The islanders refused to inter those from the Castleford for less than thirty shillings each'.

We can on page 045, where the Bartram yard was located. the vessel was sold, in 1894, to Japanese owners (G. Fukui Maru was hit by a Russian torpedo & sank in its targeted position. The attack was considered to be a great success even though a narrow access passage still remained open. Gipsy, built 1858, (later renamed Gypsy), still exists today, it would appear, owned by the Padstow Regatta Committee.

I thank the New York Times for their article (source) of Jan.
