It's real. It may be resurrected as a "Peter Pan" "Neverland Clipper" flying boat fantasy...,

I've been working on the hull planking construction method. Probably have something in a few days.

Hi John,

I have the Rogers' book and have the "How Lobsterboats Are Built" book on order. Never enough source material...,

I'll look over the photos once again for detail and I'll let you know if there's any need for a higher resolution source. I have picked up on the need for "ice boards" on the bow section. You've got to be crazy to work lobster pots with ice on the water - guess jobs in Maine are really scarce...,

Size

Thinking of sizing the model at a scale of 1:32 - yields a length of around 13.5 inches...,

1:32'ish sounds great. Manageable size and allows fine and delicate detailing. Good to see that you are still working on her. Workboats are dear to me and I would love to build a decent lobster boat someday.

Gil, from you 'other diversion' thread, did you publish your 'super paste' mentioned therein?
