Conway maritime press

The Galleon
by Peter Kirsch

plans by
Harold Underhill

a reconstruction of the Golden Hind

plans of the same type vessel by parks Canada of the Grande Hermine
A life-size wooden replica of the vessel was featured at the Expo 67 in Montreal (1967). Following the Expo the replica was moved to Quebec City and put on static display in an artificial pond located in a city park, where it remained for at least three decades; poorly maintained. It was broken up completely in the same park where it sat for years

galleon cira 1540 so if the golden hind sailed in 1577 the two ship are close enough together to be build in the same generation of shipwrights.

We still have a replica of the Golden Hinde in the UK

I saw they had a crowd funding project to replace some rotting timbers.

Hello Gemma and Dave

I thank you both very much for the information on the English Galleons. I have a set of Harold Underhill's plans from the Model Dock Yard in Cornwall, the UK on order and they should arrive here in Ontario, Canida early next week. This will be my next build and I would appreciate very much any help and information that you could send my way.

Please feel free to send me an e-mail, thank you, ENJOY.

Regards Canoe21 { Lawrence }

if you have any problems or questions post them and I will try to answer the best I can. If you need help with converting the Underhill plans for model building I am glad to help.

Will this be a bulkhead hull?

Hello Dave

Yes, this build will be a bulkhead build, I am half tempted to try a frame build but I am not sure if I possess the extra skills to build one of these. However, it has always been a pipe dream of mine, ENJOY.

Underhills plans are of a generic Galleon. What you need to do is get the size (tonnage) of the Golden Hinde and the size of the Underhill galleon. I do think galleons were built in all different sizes
