Revenue Cutter 1815; Baltimore Clipper hull form designed by William Doughty who was the raining naval architect shows a 6-gun vessel with a center pivot-gun amidships. It was approximately 80 tons and had a length on deck of 69'6". This type of patrol vessel was used for north Atlantic waters and therefore encompassed solid bulwarks, and a full topsail rig.
