    During the Voyage of the Batavia to East India Francisco Pelsaert shipwrecked on the Australian coast. Before he was Skipper on the Batavia he was in charge of a sister ship - the Dordreght.
    The Dordreght was built in 1618 on the Peperwerf in Amsterdam. She was about 150 Amsterdam feet w.i. roughly 43 meters. On her stern was the maiden of Dordrecht, and this statue (from 1616) is still on the Groothoofdspoort of the city of Dordrecht.
    Fully scratch build, but I am planning to make a model kit of her in future.

    Here's a very simple 1/20-scale model of a Japanese rice field boat, or "Tabune" (tah-boo-ney), from Gifu prefecture, central Japan.
     
    Most rice field boats are generally much smaller, being little more than a sled that is pushed or pulled along the irrigated rice fields. But, in some areas, where flooded fields are connected by rivers or canals, larger boats like this one were used. This particular boat would have been 22 feet long and propelled using a long bamboo pole. The boatman would commonly stand on the platform at the stern.
     
    The boat is based on a photo of a set of drawings that were being used by a boatbuilder in Japan, Mr. Seichi Nasu, to build three similar boats. I found the photo on the blog site of Douglas Brooks, who will shortly be working with Mr. Nasu in Japan to build a Cormorant Fishing boat.
     
    The photo distorted the plans, but it had the measurements written, which was the critical part. I figured out only after the build how much rise there should have been to the bow, so the bow on mine is about 3.5mm too high.
     
    The model is about 13" long and is made mostly of Japanese cedar, or Sugi, a very common material for modeling traditional Japanese boats and for building full-sized boats. These particular boats might have been commonly been made of pine, but the information I have on that is pretty sparse. The ones that Mr. Nasu built were of pine. So, if I build another one of these, I may use a light colored wood. 
     
    The nice thing about modeling this particular boat at this scale is that it only took me two days to work out the details and build it, though I added some of the fine details were added later, but still only added a few more hours.

    I wanted to build a model of my fathers fishing pirogue from the 1960s which was built of local cedar. Today most of the Caribbean fishing boats are made of fibreglass. It took me a few years to find an old wooden one. I spent lots of time measuring the various parts. I also built it the way the local fishermen build it upside down from the keel to the gunnel. It is  is an exact copy.

    This boat is typical of the working craft in the Penobscot Bay area of Maine around 1900. These boats worked the then thriving salmon fishery. It is scratch built in a scale of 1:18. A build log can be found under the same name.

    The model represents a Gr. traditional vessel known as "Tserniki of Mykonos Isl.” rigged with a "Half-lateen sail".
    It's was a version of standard "Tserniki" vessel but with a raised stern post.
    The "half-lateen sail” rigging for some ones was considered also as "Sakoleva” rigging, although there are differences.
    It was a small merchant and fishing vessel at early of 19 century and can be seen in old photos of Cyclades Islands.
    Scale: 1:24 - Length: 60cm - Width:13 cm - Height: 55 cm
