BUILDER'S PRESENTATION
HALF MODEL OF A
MOTOR SHIP Ca 1890

DIMENSIONS:

The ship model 36 1/4" L x 4" W x 4" Depth
The backboard 43 1/4" L x 10" H x 1 1/4" T
Hull: 36 1/4" L x 4" D x 4" W Weight: 15 lbs

Presented is a larger than usual American made builder's half hull of an early motor vessel. It is comprised of 7 lifts. A "lift" is one plank. It has a cruiser bow with a hollowed forefoot and fantail stern. There is a prominent shaft tunnel below the counter at mid point of the keel. The backboard is a thick 1 1/4" plank of Mahogany that is 43 1/4" long, and is finished in varnish.
Interesting back side with two metal straps and two metal plates. Holes in hull.

The board has been cut in the silhouette of the model which is the first time we have seen this treatment. The model is recessed in the cutout and held in position by two bronze straps on the back. There are two bronze pads with no obvious use and two hangers. The drilled holes indicate that the hull was likely screwed to the board before the silhouette was removed.
 

Half Model looking up from the botttom, seven lifts are seen
 
There are 57 stations drawn on the back of which 31 are 5/8" apart and 26 are 1/2" apart. Their average separation is .5625.
 
This half hull was never intended to come apart and be used to loft the lines of a ship, but was used by the builder either as a record of their work or given as a gift to the owner. If the vessel was used in commercial service as this one likely was, it may have been used for promotion. The name of the ship it represents is unfortunately unknown, but the shape of the hull is clearly around the turn of the 20th Century, say Ca 1890.
