Schooner

Schooner

Model schooner by Brian.

Some years ago, Brian built a few model ships of various kinds. Some in a bottle, some larger & smaller. This was done especially for Nardin (the ship’s name is on the stern).

The wheel is carved from a single piece of wood and rotates freely. The lower boom swings about the mast. The upper boom is fixed, but was built the same as the lower one. The rigging is all tied tight. The cradle fits the hull perfectly. Each pulley has a hole in the to attach the rigging and simulate the real thing.

Beauty.
