From the New England Fiddler’s Repertoire. As yet, I haven’t found this tune elsewhere.
I know the tune called "Da New Rigged Ship," but it’s a three-part Shetland reel, not a jig.
Could you post "Da New Rigged Ship", please
Another printed version
A tune that is a recognizable variant on the one trevor posted here is at the end of the anglo concertina tutor book (1985) by Betram Levy. He doesn’t say where he got it.
Trevor, "Da New Rigged Ship" has already been posted to the site:
Just do a search for the title from the front page of the tunes section to see if a tune has been posted.
It’s quite different to this tune.
New Rigged Ship
This jig is widely played in North-east England but I don’t think that it is originally a Northumbrian Tune.
Angels of the North
Miss Finlay’s Delight
Yes I’ve heard it in the Northeast before, but I have a feeling that it might be Scottish originally, maybe Shetland like the reel "Da New Rigged Ship", and the Ador jig usu. called "Da Full Rigged Ship" - both lovely tunes. This particular tune I’ve heard played in D and G, and it is aka "Miss Finlay’s Delight".

Once popular in the USA, not so much now. There is a southern 4/4 version called Green Willis, but Ive only heard once. I prefer the 6/8. The American version is just like the versions posted here.
The New Rigged Ship, X:3
Setting as played at the Golden Guinea pub session, Bristol, UK.
One of the alternative titles of this tune: "Green Willis" (as posted by someone above) is indeed simliar to "The New-Rigged Ship" jig, but it’s an American old-timey reel (in 4/4 time).

Re: The New Rigged Ship
The New Rigged Ship is also a 48 Bar Scottish Country Dance. It’s quite old and not often seen on a program as it is 48 bars. Only recently did I learn it is aka Miss Findley’s Delight.
It is the perfect tune for teaching the skip change step to beginning Scottish Country dancers.
