Our replica of the Gertrude Thebaud a gaff rig main and foremast, three jibs, a foresail, mainsail, upper topsails on both masts and a large fisherman staysail between the main and foremast. The running rigging, including lazy jacks, and carefully stitched sails with reef points, is all authentic and makes this an incomparable model. It has a beautifully enameled midnight black hull with white whale stripe, white deckhouse decks and cap rail, and varnished wood .

If you've been browsing the boat models offered on th internet, you will be hard pressed to find any that represent boats that are North American in design, and are executed as finely overall as our line. You can spend a lot more money for so called "museum quality"  detailing, but you can get the same satisfaction and pride of ownership from our  line of very reasonably priced,  high quality models.
 
MODEL DIMENSIONS: 30 1/2" L x 26" H x 5" W   WEIGHT 3 lbs
 
MINOR ASSEMBLY REQUIRED: To save cost, this model is shipped with its masts down and bowsprit housed. For most people, it is a simple affair to step the mast, rig the bow sprit, and hook on all the stays and shrouds, and attach the sails. The detailed instructions are excellent, and the sails have numbered stickers on them, but if you have a problem, email or call us for guidance.

BRIEF HISTORY GERTRUDE L. THEBAUD:

Schooner (2 masts). L/B/D: 132.6 Loa 25.2 12.2 draft . Tonns: 137 grt. Hull: wood. Comp.Mach.: aux. engine, 180 hp. Design.: Frank Paine. Built: Arthur D. Story Yard, Essex, Mass.; 1930.

Built in large part due to the generosity of a Franco-American summer resident of Gloucester, Massachusetts, Louis Thebaud, for whose wife the schooner was named, Gertrude L. Thebaud was the last of the Gloucester-built Grand Banks fishing schooners. Although the era of the sailing fisheries was clearly in its twilight, the impetus for Thebaud was the prospect of capturing the International Fisherman's Trophy from the Nova Scotia fleet. As were all vessels that sailed in this competition, Thebaud was built for fishing. But though fast, well found, and ably skippered, her reputation as a fisherman was modest. She sailed in two series against Gloucester's archrival, Bluenose. In 1931, under Captain Ben Pine, she lost in two straight races. Seven years later, in what proved to be the last contest for the trophy, she won two out of five races held between October 9 and 26.

Despite her average career as a sailing fisherman, Gertrude L. Thebaud was well liked and proved an outstanding ambassador for the port of Gloucester. In April 1933, she carried a delegation to Washington, D.C., to plead on behalf of the hard-pressed fishing industry before President Franklin D. Roosevelt. When the president visited the ship, he was accompanied by Britain's Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald. In July of that year, she sailed to Chicago to be part of the Massachusetts state exhibit at the World's Fair. Four years later, she was chartered by the Arctic explorer Donald B. MacMillan and sailed as far north as Frobisher Bay with a crew of thirty-seven professors, students, and professional crew. Chartered to the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II, she served as flagship of their coastal defense fleet.

Sold to William H. Hoeffer of New York in August 1944, she departed Gloucester on May 29, 1945, and ended her days as a cargo vessel in the Caribbean. Nearly three years later, in February 1948, she was driven onto a breakwater at La Guaira, Venezuela, and broke up.
