About Me

Hello everyone,

My name is Daniel. I am presently serving in the RCN and hold a commission at the rank of Lieutenant (Navy). I was educated at the Marine Institute in Newfoundland and earned a diploma of Nautical Science. Upon graduating, I immediately shipped off to British Columbia and trained to be a naval officer. I finished my basic naval officer training courses and was posted to our east coast tanker HMCS PRESERVER. Since then I have been attached to both Iroquois class destroyers and several Halifax class frigates. In 2010 I "went boats" and earned a bachelor's degree in Maritime Studies in October 2012 and my submarine dolphins in the spring of 2013. I am now returning to the "Skimmer fleet". We'll see how that plays out now that I've been to the dark side. In my personal life, I'm divorced. My son lives with his mother. I spend as much time as I can building at a 1:1 scale. I have built an 18 foot Redbird canoe and am now working on a 13 foot sail and oar Catspaw dinghy. The hope is to one day build one of Murray Peterson's Coaster type Schooners. My builds are posted to the Woodenboat forum for those interested in my 1:1 scale work.  I have limited scale building having built a spanish galleon as a young boy (pre teen most likely) a USS Constitution and a Cutty Sark in small scale as well as a Revell 1:96 Cutty Sark. I'd like to progress to a wooden Cutty Sark at some point in a scale a little bigger than the 1:96. I'm presently working on my second 1:96 Cutty Sark to replace the one I built as a teenager that has been damaged in moves and admitedly wasn't very well done as I had no patience. Now I can spend a bit more time working on it.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
