Hi R.G.Y.,
very nice, love the old wooden sailing craft, barges and scows.
The russet sails make the boat for you. One day I hope to have a NZ schooner scow on the pond, but in the meantime will have to make do with my little footy-scow.

Hi Kiwi, is this the same type of "footy skow" as is shown in the Marine Modelling Int magazine from October'09 ? I just picked the mag up yesterday for another article on a Canadian CG  Ice Breaker. In the centrefold wass a rather nice model.... no not that kind.... a footy classskow with two alternate bow designs. If it is I know someone who will be requesting a copy.

cheers

Hi Jim,
yep, that's my little footy-scow.
The Alma (usa) is finished and sailed weekends, the Alma (nz) is being re-rigged at the moment, and drawings finished. I have A3 sets of drawings for both, and there will be a third with a different hull. (There where basically 3 hull types).

She's a little beauty Harry, and is that sailplan of "CURACAO" featured in a thread somewhere the ship that came out to N.Z. and what would you call that rig??? Several of the Curacao crew died at and are buried at Rangiriri after the siege. and your last pics of Rahiri appear as though council have cleaned up . regards ray

Geoff,

That's some lovely work, you've got there!  Love that brig & the trawler ain't bad, either.  ;)

Hi Jim,
When I've finished the NZ Alma drawings to the same standard as the US Alma, I'm thinking of posting them to the download section of paddleducks, so free to everyone, but them not being paddle boats don't know if this will be ok.
Otherwise will put them on my web-site as a free download (or my wiki site).
Will keep you informed. And they will be free as a pdf to print out as A3 sheets (about 6 sheets to go with the colour spread from the Nov09 MMI).
cheers

The last image you posted is one of those rare photographs where it's difficult to tell if you're looking at a model or the real boat - Magnificent Geoff!
