      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      An Incentive for Starting a Build Log

      The NRG’s Generic East Coast Oyster Sharpie plan sets have been selling out – we had to reorder prints 2X already.

      BUT nobody has started a build log yet.  As an incentive we have decided to reward the first three (3) MSW / NRG members who purchase the plans and start and continue* actual build logs** from the plans. 

      The build logs should be started in the scratch built forum and labeled with Generic Sharpie – by “your ID”.  When we have six or more build logs up and running we will set up a group build area for the Generic Sharpie build logs.

      The winners will be able to pick any one of the prizes listed below:

      Free registration for one day at 2018 or 2019 NRG Conference                  ($145 value)

      Shop Notes 1 and 2 set                                                                         ($60 value)

      Nautical Research Journal – all content set

      4 – CDs or 1 Flash Drive            ($150 value)

      Continental Galley Washington Plan set                                                    ($65 value)

      1 year NRG membership or extension                                                      ($50 - $62 value)



      *“Continue” means that multiple posts containing build log content must be made for a minimum of 30 days after the initial post.  Logs will be tracked by starting date and the first 3 that have continued for 30 days following their initial post will be declared the winners.

      **Note the words “actual build logs” – no fair showing a few pieces of wood and going no further just to win. 


      The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph .  Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details.  This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience.  All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers.  However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds.  Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price.  An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

  1. La Jacinthe

    LA JACINTHE - Goêlette - 1823 scale 1:65
  2. 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.
