Super google surfer Neil De-Ville has unearthed this photo of the ship 'Ebenezer' (on Ebay) that turns out to be another Shoreham built ship photo that has come to light. Our ‘Ships Built or Registered in Shoreham’ listings http://www.shorehambysea.com/category/reference-material/13th20th-c-ships-builtregistered-in-shoreham/ show it to be a 177 ton brig built in 1860 by May & Thwaites of Kingston that enjoyed a very long working life as a coaster for almost sixty years. It took a German submarine to finally  finish it off on 15th July 1917 when it intercepted the vessel and sunk her with explosive charges.
