Bleecker Posted March 15, 2019 Share #1 Posted March 15, 2019 I have been away for a time due to personal issues but I am back. I had a bit of trouble with my first appearance in this site. I am hoping my introduction will go better this time. Rather than type a lot of detail about me, I will refer you to my website. My website was created with this site introduction in mind. I am very new here but hope to get some assistance. My website is: www.dogholeschooners.com The site should answer most questions. And I do live north of the San Francisco Bay near Ft. Ross and well north of Bodega Bay. I am attempting to create an accurate model of what is called a west coast "doghole schooner". But since there are NO known drawings I will use many photos especially of beached schooners showing hull details. I do have an accurate (40 foot) sloop model drawings - the model was made about 1880. If I use the sloop model and a half model of a very large part time doghole schooner, which is part of the San Francisco National Maritime Museum collection, I should be able to create a model in the 75 foot range - about half way between the models I can access. The half model from which the "Maid" was built is gave us the real schooner which is 110 feet in length. The "Maid" looks something like the attached photos she was an all purpose schooner and was mostly used to carry lumber and later is he life was a cod and salmon fishing boat used in Alaska.
