Not sure if there will be any appetite for my models on this forum. No wood was harmed in the production of this model at 1/144
She is typical of the numerous Mackerel and Pilchard Drivers see around our coasts until the early 1900 when they were replaced by steam.
The hull length was around 39' (12m) overall with fore and aft out riggers loa. 69.5' (21.2m)
The boat is based on the Happy Return, a lugger which is still operating today from Penzance. The back drop of St Michaels Mount in the background was taken from the Happy Return by Len of the Mounts Bay Lugger Association
