This 26 foot long was designed based on a contemporary model in the National Maritime Museum shown below. This longboat was used circa 1750-1760 and was typical of this type of small craft. Plans for this model and MS kit prototype were drafted based on the contemporary drafts from the period. The longboat has been decorated to match the NMM model that inspired it. Even though this model was inspired by another, many other color schemes are possible. There are many more contemporary models that show various decorative themes. Another very good source of information on these small boats is “The Arming and Fitting of English Ships of War” by Brian Lavery. This book discusses the many details you sometimes find on these Longboats. Another good reference is "The Boats of Men of War" by W.E. May. Some references to these book will be mentioned throughout this project. This scratch project was the prototype for the Model Shipways kit. An image of the finished model is posted below and can be compared to the contemporary model above. I Also below you will find the PDF instructions for the kit which has more details.
