The date given is the date aquired bu the New Hampshire State Navy. As no reason is given it is possible the ship pre-dated that acquistion.
There is also a record of a schooner of that name leaving Annapolis on April 4 1775
Schooner Friends Adventure, John Fulford, Master
40 ton, 5 men, bound for Barbadoes
24 Bbls of Fish, 1,100 Bushels of Corn, 277 Barrels of Flour, 12 Barrels of Bread

However there are several vessels called Friends Adventure recorded in the period so the connection is not certain

Hi guys, I know it says the Friends Adventure was commissioned in 1777, I however have a Jan 20th, 1776 Pennsylvania Ledger with a $2 reward seeking a runaway named William Bruce, 16, from the "Schooner Friends Adventure."
