Senior ole salt Posted March 7, 2014 Share #1 Posted March 7, 2014 Has anyone here made sails of wood ? I made this little model with wooden sails. It was of a 27' gaff rigged cutter I built for the family. Through years ( the model) took on several storms. I took the model apart to facilitate the needed repairs to make the model whole again. The dust was pretty thick and the rigging rotted away. The bowsprit was broken off as well as the cross trees. ( That's a 6" ruler in the background.) Here is a picture of what the boat looked like under the sail taken in 1960. This time I plan to put the model in acrylic case with a sea of some kind. I like sails of wood. you can make them look like they're full of wind. S.os Piet, yvesvidal, DSiemens and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
