Sailing well in the sun and sparkling waters. A NZ Scow scratch built from plans. Unusual trading schooner based on those from the Great Lakes, USA.Actual vessel now restored as an example of an early NZ coastal trader.

Speed line kit completed a year ago. Sails well and is fun to handle. Has done many hours on the water and is still in good shape considering the conditions I have subjected it to.😎

How long did it take for Speedline to post this kit to you? have waited nearly four weeks for mine and still no sign!!!!!
Response by alan20 on the 23rd Jan 2018
I don't recall exact time. It was over two years ago that I got the kit but I do recollect having to wait a little.

I was going to do a day sail on her in Weymouth Bay but came down with a bug before I could. Quite reasonable terms too. Crew were very friendly. Not sure if they were in Weymouth for part of the Dunkirk film filmed in Weymouth Harbour, we had three such old trawlers and drifters anchored in the centre of the harbour. Great sight.

Hi Selwyn, I just bought the BluRay of 'Dunkirk', I'll keep an eye out for her!🤓
Response by SelwynWilliams on the 20th Jan 2018
I was given a copy of Dunkirk for Christmas but not got around to viewing it. You might spot some modern buildings and modern boats in the background at Weymouth.

Excelsior - Posted: 1 month ago by Gascoigne
Here is the last of the Lowestoft sailing trawlers. Model built using working drawings kindly supplied by the Sailing Trust. Model about 12 years old. I got a little carried away on detail! As expected she sails and handles well as all the old work sailors do.
Drop keel and rudder extension added when sailing. I was intrigued to discover that the deck winch was steam powered,no doubt to help with taking in the trawl net.

Another fine example of your work.... all your boats look superb and I know from my own experience of them how well they sail and look on the water.

I’ve never seen such a motley crew ... other than on my tugboat. Photo to follow. Ha! In addition the Junk is really a sight to behold and enjoyed by members and the public alike.

Try Hobbies,they sell various small battery powered outboards although you may have to modify the stern sheets to accomodate.
