  1. “The legend lives on from the Chippewa of the big lake they call Gitchi Gummi. Superior it’s said never gives up its dead when the gales of November come early.” Gordon Lightfoot “The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” 1979 Freeboard: The vertical distance from a vessel’s waterline to the upper deck, measured at the lowest point where water can enter. Chapter 1- THE LAKE In his classic 1941 children’s book Paddle to the Sea, author Holling C. Holling describes Lake Superior as being shaped like the head of a wolf. Sault Saint Marie ( the SOO) wh
  2. Pardon any formatting errors - My first build log, and first build. Trying to follow the conventions on this site. Quick blurb about me (if anyone cares...lol). I was 2 years old when this ship went down, so I obviously have no recollection of ever seeing it sail up/down the Detroit River on it's regular run carrying taconite (iron ore pellets) from Lake Superior ports to the steel mills in Detroit and Ohio regions. Born, raised, and still live only a couple blocks from the Detroit River on the Canadian side in Windsor, Ontario. Been a boatnerd my whole life, and still am. Hav
  3. I got a set of plans for the Edmund Fitzgerald, today. They are in 1/192 scale and originate from the Archer Company in Toledo, OH from 1978. I will be putting the Victory on hold in the near future for this project. I am going to build her POB. The keel and bulkheads will be 1/4” plywood. The covering will likely be the leftover houghtboard that I used for the Prince de Neufchatel. The Edmund Fitzgerald was steel, so I’m not worried about planking detail. Plus 1/192 scale makes it difficult to put tiny details on anyways. I’ll st
  4. After my yacht, Utrecht, I decided to start building several 17th century Dutch merchant ships and the first one is a Boyer. The plans are from Ab Hoving and Cor Emke published by SeaWatchbooks. The Boyer was a small freighter, often seen in the entire North West European area. In literature it is suggested that the Boyer was developed from another ship, the 'heude', a Southern Dutch inshore vessel, which, in order to be able to sail the higher waves of the open sea (albeit in close vicinity of the coast), was buoyed up (heightened)in the sides; hence its name. Like e
  5. Karl and Marie is based on a typical German freight boat, which were built from the 18th century for use in the East Sea. This type of boat is called the Galeasses, but was nothing to do with the Mediterranean Galeasses. The wide hull allows for a large cargo and was extremely stable but not very fast.
