This was an order placed by the Santa
Barbara Maritime Museum in California. They
wanted to have a diorama with a lot of small
open boats unloading cargo from a bigger sail
vessel. This whaler being in the foreground it
had to be very well detailed. I used a
moulding technique for this model and
installed all the ribs after the hull was taken
from the mould. All joints in the keel or
keelson were scarphed.
