Saucy Jack – Barking Well-Smack – 1836
Although using the well to keep the fish was a better method than salting and wind drying, it had several drawbacks. Well smacks were not very fast due to the effect of carrying several tons of sea-water within the hull. The extra scantlings required and the manufacture of the well itself resulted in a significant increase in the cost of the vessels themselves.
