Agnes_bow_general_for_site.jpg
Agnes1089 viewsAbsolutely wonderful scale (1/12th) sailing model of a modern Bristol Channel Pilot cutter, built using traditional materials and the original plans. SOLD

Small fishing boat. (detail)451 views

Lowestoft trawler.227 viewsThe Lowestoft sailing trawlers were large, powerful vessels. They illustrate the ultimate development of the offshore fishing vessel before the coming of steam. At least one survives today, and you can still go sailing on her, getting a taste of working life at sea in the days of sail. If you love working sailing vessels, as I do, this fine model will be a worthy embellishment to your home.

shamrock3.jpg
Shamrock V (J Class)213 viewsShe set off for the Americas Cup after an extremely successful season in British waters. At the time, she had a wooden mast, laminated from about fifty pieces of silver spruce. Many of her lines were rope, where their equivalents in "Enterpise" were wire. She relied heavily on tackles, having few winches. It also seems that her afterguard were less expert than Vanderbilt's team, while at the same time being reluctant to take advice from the professional crew. It is therefore perhaps not surprising that she was badly defeated, never looking likely to win a single race of the series.

HMS Victory298 viewsNelson's famous flagship needs no introduction. With her complex hull form, three decks of gun ports, intricate rig and ornate decoration, she is one of the most complex and demanding wooden boat model projects possible.

HMS Victory (Restoration)332 viewsThis family heirloom came to us with the fore topgallant mast and jib-boom badly shattered, plus a good deal of other rigging damage. After about a hundred hours very close work, she left our workshop looking like this. As much original material as possible was preserved and incorporated, and new material was carefully matched. It's quite hard to tell where the old ends and the new begins, which for a restoration is right and proper.
