Walter it is indeed Emma C Berry, with a few mod's I was sailing on Victoria Au's Albert park lake when a squall hit laying her sails flat on the water. Unfortunately I hadn't pinned the hatches.

After some thought I removed all the ballast from within the hull, cut a length of 3/4" copper pipe the keel length melted the lead and poured it in the tube and attached it to the keel.

With the lead a further 1 1/4" she was much more stable.

DamienG:
My wife Jo found  this model on a local buy swap & sell for $180 I couldn't resist.
hull length stern to bowsprit tip 115 cm or 45"static model.

Sabre:
That looks a bit like a Bluenose model.

DamienG:
It is indeed a Bluenose model.

DamienG:
I received a nice gift from my wife yesterday a 10 cent Canadian 1978 coin with Bluenose engraved on it.
