Thiis has got a plent of wreck measurements and the following reconstruction Each single reconstruction drawing is made reliable by a single 1/15 model in oak - builed after the boatbuilders traditional building method, with belt and braces by testimonials by (elder or retiered) local boatbuilders.

The Stettin version of the Zees barge does have a full length deck (shown above) and is as long as my kit.

There are local differences of the type - but noting is dogmaticly established. Every barge is a singular contract between a fisherman and the boatbuilder. The demands of the user and the expert knowledge of the builder allways mixed upto a individual solution. And the kitbuilder Mr. Kammerlander told me the kit is showing a type - not a singular barge!

And so I asked the specialist for fishermen's history in the southern coast of the  Baltic Sea Mr. Olszak. And he want to tell me something more about her in some phonecalls during the next weeks.

So this text is

T.B.C. :)

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.
