This is an Amati kit of a fictitious row galley circa 1813. Similar boats were used on the Great Lakes during the War of 1812.

Thank you for the recent interest. I don't know if this design has a European  beginning or not. These were used in the Great Lakes and coastal waters during the War of 1812. They rode so low the square riggers couldn't aim their cannon low enough to hit them. However they were vulnerable to musket fire. Apparently it was difficult to find seamen to crew them.

 

Even a few years after completion I still find it an interesting model to look at.
