unknown barque

Name is partially readable: TE....A. Thus 7 letters and a name like TERCERA would fit.

The Melpomene was downrigged to a barque and renamed Tercera, and from the photo in this link it is not impossible that it is her. But I cannot say it is proven either.

She was built at the Reiherstieg yard in Hamburg for B. Wencke & Sons in 1876

But, nooo...the Danish Tercera, ex German Melpomene, had a whaleback poop, and although it was a low one., I think it would have shown in the picture. The whole of the wheel is showing, so she was not flush-decked. But there is no sign of that whaleback. It was worth a try, the name fitted perfectly :sweat:
