A great entry level to the world or model boat building. Traditional clinker-built whaleboat launch, used in New Bedford up to 1860. Sturdy and light, with similar bow and stern, the whaleboat launch carried a crew of six and a wide range of accessories for hunting and navigation. A whaleboat launch could be dragged by a harpooned whale for many miles before the whale tired, and sometimes it would take days to sail back to the mothership, so the launch was always well-stocked with drinking water, food and tobacco, along with mast, sails and compass.
The kit has been carefully engineered to give hours of modelling enjoyment.
