    πŸ“ Mystery Boat

    Thank you very much. The Brighton Queen looks much closer to the model than any I've seen. I have no idea what my uncle had to work with other than a photo or memory, so his dimensions may not have been exact. Otherwise, there are a number or features that appear very similar. I suppose the number of masts could have changed over the years. The round porthole lines and the deck features look very similar. If this isn't the ship he modelled, at least it looks like it is not totally generic.

    My great uncle John Bell built this boat sometime around 1900. He was a watchmaker in Cowes, IOW and was an aircraft mechanic in the Royal Flying Corps. He died in 1917. The boat came to the U.S. in the 1920's when his sisters emigrated. It has a two cylinder steam engine. It has been in the family all these years and it's always been a mystery if this model is of a specific boat or just a generic representation of a channel steamer. We assume it would have been one that worked out of the Isle of Wight. I've looked at numerous pictures online and seen similar boats, but most seem to be proportionally longer than this one. I'd appreciate any help in identifying it but realize it's a long shot. Thanks Dave
