ANTIQUE BUILDER'S HALF HULL MOTORSHIP MODEL Ca 1860 - 1870 

 

Presented is a older antique builder's model made to loft the lines of a motor vessel as the first step in the building process. This one's age can be estimated from the two dowels that hold the planks together which is how they were made in the first half of the 1800's.
 
Half Hulls were carefully hand carved, and incorporated the latest in the designer's knowledge of which shape produced the fastest and most seaworthy vessel. A comparison of various half hulls can trace the evolution of watercraft design, and this one shows a curved floor, rounded bilges, shallow draft and skeg which indicates the hull to was to be propelled by some form of machinery. The stern has a very unusual reverse counter which we have not seen before in this age period. Counters such as this were seen on sailboats built in the 1960 - 1970's.
 
It is constructed of six "lifts" of wood each 3/4" thick. The lifts were made to be taken apart, and used as a template to lay off the lines on the floor. These were then enlarged to the vessel's full size in a process that was called "lofting".
 
MARKINGS: Marked in pencil on the deck, at the keel and on the rear are 20 stations, each 1 1/2 inches apart, plus 1 1/2 inches at the bow and 2 1/2" at the stern.

PROVENANCE: This hull comes from Canada which is all we know about it.
 
DIMENSIONS:

The ship model is  32 3/4" L x 4 1/2 W x 4" H
The backboard is  39" L x 7" W x 3/4" D
Weight 8 1/2 pounds     Estimated scale 3/16" equals 1 foot

CONDITION: The half hull is in near original condition, but has been cleaned to remove the smell of being in a smoke filled environment. There is a crack about 4 inches aft of the bow which originates at the forward dowel. There is a knot of wood which has fallen out at the turn of the bilge of the transom edge. There is one brad added holding the aft deck lift down and one brad holding the lower lift up just forward of the skeg.  The ebony finished Mahogany backboard is a recent addition.There are a few age dings and scratches on the hull, all very minor and not too noticeable.

Returns must be insured for their full value. All that is required is a prior email authorization by us for the return.
