Researching U.S. Revolutionary era military pension records discovered the following: "Watt" Captain Colter, wrecked on Montauk Point, Long Island, NYK, September 30, 1780. Captain and 24 crew drowned. Source: Pension record, Atchison Mellin, first filed 1818, Pennsylvania, subsequently filed New York. Mellin was serving as a crew member, after being made prisoner and serving on several other privateers. Mellin was a survivor of the grounding and wreck, made prisoner once again and ultimately released.

Owner (prob. in consortium) George Venables, merchant of Liverpool. Cf. letter of Richard Watt to Venables, 15 July 1780, Liverpool Record Office 920/WAT/1/2/1, letter 44 (fol. 21v): "have heard nothing of your ship the Watt".
