If you play the Brock / Brinkley branch of the storyline, you're likely to be given the Wicked Wench as a reward by Governor Brin. You then work for Cutler Beckett, and assuming you don't foul up by returning with too little profit, he ends up giving you the Wicked Wench. For one thing, this is a significant plot inconsistency - why is Cutler Beckett giving you a ship you already have? For another, you could end up with two of them. There are lots of ways to play this part of the storyline, but as far as I can tell from the walkthrough, you have to then go and work for Cutler Beckett. So I suggest changing Governor Brin to give you something else as a reward. Any ideas as to what that should be?
