This is a custom built Vintage Model Wooden Schooner of unknown age. This nicely built plank-on-frame model hull was never completed. I acquired this model about ten years ago with the intention of making a radio-controlled sailing model to chase the ducks and geese around the lake with. I never got around to it and have so many other projects going at the moment that I cannot give it justice. Its a shame to let it sit around so Ive decided to offer it to someone who would like to complete if and end up with a Unique and very nice model yacht. The hull shape very much resembles a Down East Coasting Schooner and I believe that is what it was intended to be. Here are the particulars: Overall length: 37-1/2 Widest beam: 10-3/4 Sheer height at bow (to top of stempost): 10 Sheer height at midships: 7 Sheer height at stern: 8-5/8 This could be completed as a gorgeous display model only without a problem. However, if you wanted to make this into a usable sailing model the hull would need covering with fiberglass or other waterproof membrane since there are thin gaps in the planking seams. That was my intention but I never got around to doing that. The item “Vintage Schooner Wood Ship Model for Restoration” is in sale since Thursday, August 15, 2019.
