Here's some history I found online about the cutter from 'Wikipedia', the free encyclopedia

Launched:1812
General characteristics
Type:Cutter
Armament:14 guns

Le Renard (The Fox) was a cutter armed by Robert Surcouf. She was his eighth and last privateer ship.

Renard was launched in 1812 and commissioned under captain Leroux-DesrochettesIn 1812. She was a single-mast, 70-ton cutter, with 10 carronades and 4 long guns, crewed by 46 men.. On 9 September 1812, beginning at 5 p.m. and lasting through the night, Renard successfully engaged the British 10-gun schooner HMS Alphea, crewed by 35 sailors. Combat was intense and bloody until at 3:30 a.m. the following morning, when the Alphea took two direct hits from Renard to (presumably) the powder magazine and exploded. There were no reported survivors. Leroux-Desrochettes had an arm shot away and later died of his injuries. Renard returned to France with only 13 able-bodied men.

In 1991, the Cortre Corsaire built a replica of Le Renard which I believe is in a museum in France
