    There were Four Corsairs owned by the Morgan Family.

    The first Corsair launched from Cramp & Sons Shipyard in Philadelphia 1880.

    The Second built next door at Neafie and Levy Shipyard 1891, Fishtown Philadelphia.

    The third in Newburgh NY and the fourth in Maine.


    Corsair I sold in 1891 and name changed to Kanapha / and or / Kanaphah.
