    This is a model of a 15-foot net fishing boat that was used on the Hozu river, northwest of Kyōto, Japan. The model is based on measurements recorded by boatbuilder Douglas Brooks, who built 3 of these boats over the past few years. Today, 24-foot fiberglass versions of the boat take tourists along the river's scenic rapids.
     
    This model is built at a scale of 1:10 using Japanese cedar, or sugi . It is my second completed scratch built Japanese traditional boat, or wasen .

    Bisquine la Granvilleuse
    Model built in 2002
    La Granvillaise is the reproduction of La Rose Marie (1897) on the plans of Louis Julienne and under the auspices of A.V.G.G. (Association of Old Granvillais Rigs).

    The bisquine is a work boat well known for its stability and powerful under sails during the regattas between the fishermen of Granville and Cancale for the glory and fame of their native cities.

    It is characteristic of the Mont Saint-Michel region between Saint-Malo and Granville in France in the 19th century. This type of boat used to dredge oysters in the bay of Mont Saint-Michel, trawling, and for the larger ones, fishing for lines.

    The bisquines had completely disappeared, but enthusiasts undertook to revive them in Cancale and Granville. This construction project began at the Granville shipyard in 1988. La Granvillaise was launched on April 10, 1990. It is the most important rig of all the traditional boats.

    La Granvillaise participates in maritime festivals for the traditional craft of sailing and regattas on the French Atlantic coast under the aegis of Esprit Grand Large1.

    It also offers cruises along the coasts of England, Normandy and around the Channel Islands for 9 passengers and day trips for 26 people.

  8. French cutter Le Cerf in 1/48 scale

    During about two years I have been building a model of French cutter Le Cerf, and finally a few days ago it could be regarded as finished. When searching a new project to build, from the beginning I somehow liked the one mast cutter Le Cerf, issued by French Ancre. So I purchased the documentation package, which included much information about French Navy in general, and especially about the vessel itself. Included were also 12 sheets of plans, which were drawn in the scale of 1/48, which suited me very well, because my previous build was also made at this scale.
     
    After having studied the documents and plans for a couple of days, I started the project by making the bulkheads out of plywood. Hull & deck planking were made using strips sawn of abachi wood, which was a positive surprise for me, because it was very easy to work with and to bend the strips and attach them in place. The hulls of French cutters were made in clinker method, and after first difficulties it seemed to me easier to make than "normal" smooth hulls.
    Gun carriages and othe small details were made of cherry wood, and decorations at the stern were carved of boxwood.
    Gun barrels are made of brass, together with the blocks and rigging threads they were the only purchased parts. Sails were made of thin Egyptian cotton. It was colored with acrylic paints together with a small amount of white glue diluted in water.
     
    I am quite happy with the result. Now again I am in the situation of trying to decide what to build next.

  10. Culé and Chata

    Barco de água Acima roughly translates to "boat of the upper river".   It was designed to transport cargo from the shallow upper reaches of the Tagus River and via canals.
     
    The boat's tender is called a chata, which directly translated means 'flat', but in this context it means a flat-bottomed boat.

    It is my second wooden model, second model of any kind since I was a young teen, and the first built from scratch. Not counting glue and paint, the only commercial parts are the rigging line, the cloth, the chain, and about 13 small wire rings. I fabricated the remaining metal parts from brass sheet, rod, and tubes. The wood is poplar, holly, cherry, and pear from trees felled by storms or found by the road.

    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.

  22. Tabune, Japanese Rice Field Boat

    Updated

    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.
