The Naval Cutter Alert was one of many armed cutters that were built to supplement the British fleet between 1763 and 1835. These small and swift vessels were generally deployed for minor roles such as conveying dispatches, routine inshore patrol work and reconnaissance duties; they were also used to assist the Revenue service engaged on preventive duties against smuggling. Often, the careers of these cutters were short lived: most were payed off after brief employment while others less fortunate, like the Alert, fell to the enemy. Although the origins of the cutter lie in mercantile and leisurely pursuits, these vessels were for a short period turned into compact and successful lighting units. Information concerning most cutters constructed after about 1790 is well documented in surviving dockyard records and other contemporary sources. Prior to this date, however, the majority of these vessels were built in private yards and so documentary evidence is unfortunately scarce and rather fragmented. In describing a cutter of the 1770s it has been necessary to look at a wide range of sources. The Alert was constructed to the lines of the Rattlesnake, an identical vessel which was built by Farley at Folkestone and launched in June 1777. This master draught, believed to have been prepared in 1776, appears to have been modified before actual build commenced and the relevant amendments governing gunports and deadeyes are marked up and annotated accordingly.
