An American ship in distress
Although it was painted five years earlier, this may possibly be the work exhibited by Whichelo at the Royal Academy in 1816 with the title, 'The packet and an American ship coming into Margate in a storm with pilot boats going out to the relief of a ship in distress'. It shows an American ship in the centre, perilously close to the shore.
