We 16 September 1863The Duncan, 74, old sailing ship, which is being broken up in No. 3 dock at Chatham,will be out of the shipwright’s hands by the end of the first week in October, when the dock will be entirely cleared in readiness for the reception of the iron paddlewheel steam frigate Recruit, 6, 150-horse power, which is once more to be docked, in order to discover the locality of a leak, and for a few slight repairs. Since she has been lying in the harbour her bottom has become very foul, and is largely encrusted with weeds and animalculae.
