Maine Lobster boat fiasco - the Denny-Zen

Post by popeye » Thu May 28, 2015 3:15 pm

the second phase of my catch up, was to do the finished log on this build as well. this is the scratch build result of what can happen, when one tried to over enhance a build. I had inadvertently ruined the subject of the Maine Lobster Boat......this is the atonement of my 'sin'......as it were.

the time it took to scratch build this hull was quick and easy. once the progress caught up to the Phylly C, these two builds merged to form the dual build you saw in the build forums {I actually forgot which one it originated in....silly me}

I hope you enjoy the log.

That looks like a real working boat. Great job of weathering.
Happy modeling,

Hi Popeye, not being familiar with fishing boats, what is the purpose of the sail at port rear.

hi Eric

the purpose of the sail is for stability when setting out the traps. it keeps the boat from rocking side to side, and could also keep them on a straight course.

It's called (commonly) a "riding" sail. It served to keep the boat pointing into the wind when hauling pots. Also some anecdotal stories from old timers that it would offset the "sail" area of the cabin forward to maintain a desired alignment to the wind (sometimes a lobster boat also fishes with nets or other methods and wanted to stay steady broadside to the wind). also kept the bow pointing into the wind when at anchor.

Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.
