Charles W Morgan Wood Ship Mode

Gordon Braun

Recommended Posts

I have a well loved Charles W Morgan wood model that was made by my father-in-law.  He has since passed.  Some of the running lines are broken.  Does anyone know where I can get the plans for this kit? Anyone recognize which kit this is?

Model Shipways sells plans for their Charles W. Morgan model for forty bucks. https://modelexpo-online.com/charles-morgan-plans (Yours does not appear to be the current Model Shipways model.)  The Model Shipways instruction manual (not the plans, but it may be of help to you) is available on line here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1087510/Model-Shipways-Charles-W-Morgan.html?page=33#manual Mystic Seaport sells the "official" plans, although for considerably more. You will find a lot of information on building and rigging the Morgan model here: https://www.charleswmorganmodel.com/


Your model portrays Morgan as she was launched, with her ship rig (square sails on the mizzen mast.) She was later "cut down" to a brig rig (fore and aft sails only on the mizzen.) The current Model Shipways model is of the brig rig. I don't know if they provide plans for the option of building her with her original ship rig.
