Presented is a new, up graded version of one of the finest plank on frame wood models on the market at an unbelievable low price. It is a beautiful reproduction of the Schooner Adventuress. Designed by the famous fishing schooner designer, Bowdoin Crowinshield for an Arctic Expedition, she was completed in 1913, and now in her 90th year serves as a sail training vessel in Seattle, WA. The Model Size is huge: L.O.A.=39" (with bowsprit) Height=35" (base to the top of mast) Its stitched sails, and enameled white hull paint, and gold trim are exceptional.

This wonderful model is as close to the real vessel as it exists today. Examples are:
  • A accurate main deckhouse exactly like the real vessel
  • Plus realistic helm station, forward hatch, and after dog house
  • Pin rails and belaying pins on the rail, and around each mast and in separate stand alone fixtures
  • A rubbing strake that was added years later when Adventuress served as a pilot schooner
  • Real wood sail hoops
  • Scored deck planks
  • And much more.

If you've been browsing thorough all the boat models offered on ebay, you will be hard pressed to find something that represents boats that are American in design, and are executed as nicely overall. You can spend a lot more money for museum quality detailing, but you can get the same satisfaction from our new line of very reasonably priced models.

As a retired professional mariner and collector myself, it is difficult to understand why there is such a wide disparity in quality on model boats on the internet. Many models are sold at give away prices, and when you look at them closely, they are not true to the original and are mostly representative of foreign vessels. Over the past four years we have changed that by providing high quality models of boats known and loved by American sailors at a reasonable price that will give lasting enjoyment, and pride of ownership.

SCHOONER ADVENTURESS HISTORY:

The 1913 schooner Adventuress, a National Historic vessel actively sailing and engaged in sail training, is moored when not at sea at Lake Union Drydock in Seattle, Washington. Owned and operated by Youth Adventure, Inc., Adventuress is officially registered at the Port of Seattle.

The 1913 schooner yacht and pilot boat Adventuress is an operating historic vessel retaining integrity of design, form, and function. Adventuress is significant as an excellent example of the "fisherman profile" designed yachts of Bowdoin B. Crowninshield, a noted early 20th century American naval architect whose work was influential in the development of American yachts and fishing schooners. Built for the purpose of private Arctic exploration and hunting, Adventuress was acquired by the San Francisco Bar Pilots in 1914 and worked from that year until 1952 as a pilot boat on the San Francisco Bar. Only two San Francisco Bar Pilot boats survive, California ex-Zodiac (1924), currently undergoing restoration and modification, and Adventuress which is both first in service and the older of the two vessels. Adventuress is significant through her association with the important role of the pilots which guided maritime traffic across the treacherous San Francisco Bar into the internationally-important and busy port of San Francisco.
Adventuress as Built and Operated

As built in 1913, Adventuress is 85.5 feet in length, with a 21.4-foot beam and a 9.8-foot depth of hold. Adventuress is registered at 78 gross tons and 42 net tons, with a displacement of 98.2 long tons. Built heavily with oak frames and deck beams and planked in Douglas Fir, Adventuress was constructed with iron knees, which she retains. The vessel's staunch construction was necessary for her intended use as a private hunting vessel in the Arctic. Built with fine, fast lines, Adventuress is an excellent example of her designer, naval architect, Bowdoin B. Crowinshield's work, with a fine run marked by "short, straight keels with marked drag; long, light counters; and long forward overhangs." The cutaway profile of Adventuress is typical of Crowninshield's "fisherman profile" yachts.

Adventuress' two masts were rigged to make her a topmast schooner; she carried 4,571-sq. ft. of sail. In addition to her sails, the schooner also carried a single 80-h.p. auxiliary three-cylinder gasoline Standard engine which drove her single screw. A 1,400-gallon fuel tank was installed in the vessel for the engine. Additional machinery installed in 1913 was described at the time as "electric lights...supplied by an Edison storage battery, charged by a 5-h.p. engine and an Eck generator, direct- connected....a refrigerating machine and an engine mounted under [the] deck forward to operate the windlass."

While operating as a San Francisco pilot schooner between 1914 and 1950, Adventuress underwent some modification. These changes included down-rigging the vessel to a bald-headed Bermuda-rigged schooner, removing her bowsprit to make her a "knockabout" type, replacing the foremast with a larger, lower stick with less rake, and constructing an open cockpit around the helm to protect the crew from pooping seas. The engine was replaced with a 140-h.p. Atlas-Imperial Diesel. In later years the water tank area forward was enclosed to create a low deckhouse set into the deck.

Adventuress' Present Condition and Appearance

Adventuress' distinctive lines and profile remain unaltered, as do the basic characteristics of her construction. In recent years modifications have been made to the vessel to continue her active sailing life and to facilitate her use as a sail training vessel by her owners, Youth Adventure, Inc. The area below decks was stripped to the ceiling and rebuilt; 18 berths aft and 12 forward and a modern galley and pantry have been built, and 4 watertight bulkheads were added to meet U.S. Coast Guard certification standards. The Atlas-Imperial engine has been replaced with a Gray Marine 671 marine engine. While rebuilt, the general layout of the spaces below decks approximates the original as-built layout of Adventuress. Original ceiling planking and iron hanging knees are visible throughout below. Minor repair and replacement has taken place above decks, including reconstruction of the counter, but all replacement has been in-kind and in conformity with original lines.

The vessel's original rig has been restored to its 1913 topmast schooner rig based on published plans in the Rudder and historic photographs. While the deck has been altered from her pilot appearance with the removal of the protective cockpit, the original wheel box and patent steering gear, wheel, binnacle, and trunk are in place, as are decorative cast brass elements such as ornate brass ventilators and bronze spider-bands. The original windlass remains on the forecastle deck. Another prominent feature is the ship's bell, which is engraved "S.F. Bar Pilots 1915 Sch. Adventuress." While modified on deck and remodeled below, Adventuress retains excellent integrity of hull design, function and form, and fair
integrity of accoutrement and layout.

MINOR ASSEMBLY REQUIRED:
To save cost, this model is shipped with its masts down. Because of the amount of rigging, and sails, this might not be the best choice for a beginner. If you have even a minimal understanding of a sailboat's rigging, it is a simple affair to step the masts 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.

OUR UNCONDITIONAL NO NONSENSE GUARANTEE: If not completely satisfied with your purchase it may be returned, if without damage, within three days of receipt in its original packaging. Return items must be insured for their full value. A prior email authorization by us for the return is required. Shipping charges are refundable within the continental United States due to our error.
