Anyone have any info on the whereabouts of the prison ship "success"?
I have some video of it. The ship's keel was laid in 1790 and it was in dock in SF in 1915. After that who knows.

I'm not sure where the ship is or what happened to it. But, while cleaning up a house we bought I found a box marked, Souvernirs of the Prison Ship "Success".
It has a large spike and a chunk of wood that looks like it was in a fire.

hang onto it in any case...perhaps a museum in Melbourne, Australia would be interested in it...

Good afternoon. All those prison hulk Success material should be sent to Richard Norgard in Anchorage Alaska. You can email him at email@example.com
I am a great granddaughter of one of the caretakers of the ship Success. Although my great grandfather sold the ship circa 1911, I would be interested in seeing the video
I live in Simi Valley, CA by the way.
