THIS FINE MODEL HAS BEEN SOLD! THANK YOU.

Presented is a museum quality model of a Pinky Schooner built by the American master model maker, Werner Cobert. The model is based on drawings, which date back to crafts of this type that became popular in the late 1700's through the 1800's. It was built from the plans dated 1850 in Howard I. Chapelle's, History of American Sailing Ships.  These double-ended Pinks of the early New England settlers were easy to build and seaworthy. They were used for fishing, as small passenger vessels, and as Pilot boats. The model is constructed from pine and Mahogany with Walnut and Birch trim. The individual deck and hull planks are held in place by small nails. And all the metal fitings are hand made. The model is authentically fitted out with appropriate deck gear, houses, and rigged with furled sails.

 
DIMENSIONS:
 
Model 19 3/4" L x 4 1/2" W x 17" H
Case  20 5/8" L x 8" W x 18 1/2" H
 
SHIPPING: This model is available for local delivery only. Otherwise, the purchaser most make their own arrangements for packing and cartage.

HISTORY: The Pinky Schooner is a early 19th century New England fishing schooner having a sharp stern with a high false transom. The name comes from the typical stern and transom which resembles the early Dutch/North Sea 'pink', though the type is actually descended from the Chebacco boats of Ipswich now Essex County area of Massachusetts (with a similar stern), and that evolved from the 18th century colonial Shallop. The Pinkys were apparently sized up to about 60'. They were strong, seaworthy workboats, adaptable, easy to maintain and sail, and long-lived.

The rig was a two masted fore and aft schooner with a short bowsprit and one headsail, with a foremast stepped well forward. They usually carried a main topmast from which could be set a staysail. The pinky's ends were full bodied above the waterline and sharp below it. The false stern, a high narrow raking transom extending out beyond the rudder was high enough to work as a boom crutch, while the open underside allowed water to drain away. The pink stern also protected the helmsman from heavy following seas, protected the rudder in crowded ports, and apparently served as a "seat of ease".

They ruled the New England fisheries from about 1815 through 1840, whereupon they were superseded by larger faster vessels. The type developed in Essex MA, and variations were built in Maine, New Brunswich and Nova Scotia. The most developed variant, the Eastport (Maine) Pinky, designed as a faster, clipper-like sailer, became popular in the 1850's and 60's.

The War of 1812 Pinky Schooner "Fame" is likely the most important Pinky ever. She was built in Gloucester, owned in Salem, and was a fast Chebacco/Pinky type fishing schooner that became a privateer when the War of 1812 broke out. She took at least 21 prizes before being wrecked in the Bay of Fundy in March, 1914.
