St Peter reference
 
Another great St. Peter reference image for my fellow Steller-ites this week.

This double-masted brig was built in Okhotsk along with her sister ship, the St. Peter in 1739-1741. The ships were sailed around Cape Kronotsky at the southern tip of Kamchatka then supplied and prepared in Avacha Bay for their trans-Pacific voyage in summer 1741. 

More ships and background history are on the way...
