This blog is devoted to the life and legend of perhaps the most famous sailing ship of all time, the Ship Success, also known as the Convict Ship Success. Here I will share my research, travels, and discoveries, the fruits of my 40-year search for the true story of the Success. It is hoped that a lively discussion will ensue, as I complete my long awaited history of the Success, 'Heart of Teak.'
