Originally a French (or possibly Portuguese) Man-of-War of The “Pink” Classification of ships (so named for their more slender style), this vessel was captured by infamous Pirate Captain Edward “Ned” Low in 1723. Renamed The “Rose Pink” (unclear historically why), she displaced 150 tons and mounted 30 cannon of various poundage. She stood 24 feet tall (a beam), and was roughly 90 feet long. Constructed of oak wood, Low used her to plunder many French, Spanish and Portuguese vessels in his area of operations (The Caribbean). The “Rose Pink” was part of Low's “Pirate Flotilla” of 4 ships. She was lost in a storm (capsized). It was speculated that the lack of properly securing the ship's gun ports before the storm may have added in her sinking). No evidence of The “Rose Pink” has ever been found.
