These cutters were built by contract.  The DUANE and the CRAWFORD cost $16,700 total.  Dimensions given here are from the CAMPBELL (JOE LANE), the only ones remaining of the class.  The vessels dispensed with hammock rails and heavy head in favor of a clipper bow and hammock lockers.

This cutter was severely damaged in 1851 and repaired in Norfolk, VA.  In 1855 her name was changed to the JOE LANE (yet another CAMPBELL had been built), and she was sent to Oregon.  She remained on the West Coast until sold at Port Townsend, WA.
