    Not a model, but I'm sure members will be interested to learn that another new Thames Sailing Barge, called 'Snark', has been built in the West Country. She has a steel hull and was built to the same plans as some built by Fays of Southampton for Goldsmiths of Grays. If I remember correctly they were quite big barges and could carry about 160 tons of cargo. She is rigged as a mulie, that is, with a large gaff mizzen instead of a small sprit mizzen and sprouts a long bowsprit carrying in all the pictures I have seen, a foresail, jib and jib topsail. She is to be used for sailing holidays and as a yoga retreat. www.snark.limited will give you more details.

    cheers, Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind
