Mfelinger Posted December 10, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 10, 2014 I started making Pen Duick a few years ago and I had long break. Now I am making the deck, and I will show pictures from the beginning. Pen Duick was named since 1935, is a cutter drawn in 1898 by William Fife III, famous naval architect, and built in Ireland under the name of Yum. With an overall length of 15.1 m and 10 m to the floating for 2.9 m of maximum width, it supports 160 m2 of sails. Since 1938, Eric Tabarly sailed on the Penduick bought by his father. The Penduick was restored a first time in 1958, to reinforce the hull by a thickness of polyester, then was rebuilt completely between 1983 and 1989. The mast is raised 20%. She remains one of the most beautiful classical sailing ships. drawings: differences between Yum & pen Duick: Images of the ship: Pen Duick sailing - (scan from the book) The scale is 1:20 The hull is made of wood - plywood ribs, maple, coated with epoxy resin. Deck is made of pear wood, more shades. Cheers, Matija. druxey, KeithAug, mtaylor and 13 others 16 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
