    Amongst the model boat magazines from Ernie was a copy of Marine Modelling International, February 2010 in which Barrie Griffin had written an article about construction of a Thames Bawley model, including some very helpful plans, diagrams and photographs of his model during construction.

    Further research brought to light other plans and sketches which helped me plan what to do with the boat hull, and formulate the sail plan.

    From the outset I intended that this would be a sailing model, and that accuracy would therefore be compromised in order that it would sail in different wind strengths. One such compromise was the addition of a boom, where the real boats had no boom but the mainsail was loose footed.

    The photographs show the respective plans and sketches studied.
