Scratch built at 3/4"=1' to lines in Howard Chapelle's "American Small Sailing Craft" (fig. 105). These were built and used around the Bay by immigrants from Southern Italy in the late 19th Century/early 20th.

Love it!  You really captured the look of these boats, and great colors too!

Thank you!  It's a funny thing about that blue. . . Chapelle writes "The decks were painted yellow, green, or with the hard unpleasant blue used in some Mediterranean boats."  The shade I chose is quite unpleasant to my eyes, but gosh it sure works when on the water with the sun out.
