Vessel history
RODELL BAY left Portland, Oregon in October 1877 bound for Queenstown. Shortly after leaving port the captain died and a fortnight later the mate, in an apparent fit of insanity, jumped overboard. The second mate had deserted on the eve of leaving port and the boatswain, Mr Charles Sweetser, navigated the vessel to harbour after a good average time.
