    Very impressive work here. 

    I do have a couple questions concerning the oars.  One concerns the length of those oars.  While I have never had to row a boat,  it seems that the rower has a very small amount of leverage on such long oars.  Seems like they would tire very quickly.

    I notice that only the oar at the stern has some rope wrapping.  What is the function of the wrapping and why just one oar?

    I have a hard time imagining that all those men that were set adrift after the mutiny could even fit in such a small craft without floundering.  The water must have come nearly up to the cap rail!

The paddle in the scale of 1: 26 is 23 cm long, in fact it is about 6 m. I took the oar pattern from Anatomy of the Ship HMS Bounty, I agree that there should be a counterweight to the long oars, but I did it in the drawings from Anatomy. The oar should have a thick shaft at the handle to balance the weight of the long oars, because they had to be on large lifeboats. I thought about such a compromise to wrap the paddle with a string, but it probably has nothing to do with the counterweight, and more the idea that allows the paddle to stay in the dulce.
The boat was about 7 m long and it was really crowded people Captain Bligh .. Regards Piotrek.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
