The Cowboy Captain of the Cutty Sark is a 1998 Scrooge McDuck comic by Don Rosa. The story takes place between The Buckaroo of the Badlands and Raider of the Copper Hill in the series The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck making it part 3B.
The story takes place in August 1883. Scrooge exports some cattle from Montana to Indonesia but encounters a thief and meets his old friend Ratchet Gearloose from his Riverboat days. Then he becomes part of a spectacular trip aboard the clipper ship Cutty Sark on August 26, 1883. However, Krakatoa becomes more active, and soon enough, the volcano violently explodes. Scrooge and Gearloose have to ride out the pyroclastic flow, tsunami, and the falling pumice.
Real historical people Scrooge meets during this adventure include Captain F.W. Moore of the Cutty Sark, Sultan Mangkunagara V of Djokja and Sultan Pakubuwana IX of Solo. In reality, the Sultan of Djojka at the time was Hamengkubuwono VII instead of Mangkunagara V, but the error was derived from the mistake on Don Rosa's source, an 1890s traveling story titled On The Subject of Java).
