In 1713, Woodes Rogers set of on a slaving expedition to Madagascar, though his real motive was to locate the legendary pirate colonies on the island and force them to surrender. For this voyage, Rogers, with the help of his financiers, purchased the Delicia, a 460 ton merchant vessel outfitted for war with 36-guns.

Four years later, Rogers would sail the same ship into Nassau harbor to subdue the pirate colony and become governor of the Bahamas.
