  1. Topsail Schooner "Lady Kathryn"

    After many months of planning, research, reading, studying, building, rebuilding, tearing-down, tearing out hair, and experimenting, I finally am able to present to you the Yankee topsail schooner Lady Kathryn (The Kate, for short). Brig - Two Masts - Two Square Sails on the Main 21B The Kate was built in the shipyards at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in the 1720s, and transports cargo from New England to the Caribbean (with the occasional smuggling run to the French at Qu├ębec). She runs heavily armed to defend against pirates, and sails fast close to the wind to outrun Royal Navy revenue patrols. I chose the figurehead I did because it looked so much like the young friend of mine for whom the ship is named. The captain's cabin is not yet furnished and finished, but it's going to be a while before I can get around to that. Being thrifty Yankees, the old, ripped blanket in the bunk gets patched instead of thrown away. I tried quite a few building techniques that I learned from studying other ships on this site, so thank you to ALL of you who have posted pictures of your creations so fellers like me can learn from your talent and experience. Hope you all like it! By the way, if there are too many picture, please let me know and I'll delete some. This is my first major MOC post and I didn't know if there were a limit. The windlass is functional and raises both anchors. The Kate flies a flag associated with Colonial New England, the Pine Tree flag. Building the binnacle was a giant pain, but I like the way it turned out. She's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with her. Building her gave me the opportunity to buy a LOT of amazing books on 18th Century sailing ships, and schooners in particular.
