Blue Pearl (sailing barge) - Posted: 10th Dec 2017
Not quite a build as I found it on Ebay but I have added to it.
The barge was build in the 1970's and was very well made. Design is unknown to me but I first assumed it was a thames barge based on the sail layout. I was so convinced I dyed the sails red and built some false side keels. Then I saw another model thames barge, it was longer and narrower with a slightly different sail set up. So here I was a sailing barge with red sails that wasn't what I had thought it was. What else do you do apart from making it fun.

So Operation fun... Canons, Pirate flag and crew added. The barge isn't the best sail in the world but is the most remarked on boat by the passing public.
