Godspeed was the second largest vessel in the fleet. It was a typical small merchant trader, but the age or origin of the original is not known. The voyage to Virginia lasted 144 days, including delays, island stops en route, and time exploring in Virginia before settling at Jamestown on May 14, 1607. John Smith recorded that Godspeed was a 40-ton vessel, and early 17th-century treatises on naval architecture and rigging served as guides for design and construction of this replica.
