This kit, of a down east lobster boat is designed to give the modeler the best advantages in building and finishing a terrific model. All of the original patterns were made in our shop with reference to the details of several prototypes and much research in books, museums, and conversations with master modelers.  We use the finest molds and artist’s resins to bring you the highest quality hand poured castings possible .. The waterline hull incorporates the full bulwark, planking, vertical frames, decking.. The quality pewter castings made specifically for this kit add the required detail. This kit includes excellent instructions, and photos.
 

Note: we also offer this kit in the Full Hull version to be displayed on your mantel, bookcase etc. or on your layout or diorama on the "rails" or at the boatyard up on "blocks" to be painted, repaired. See Kit: H143-O Full Hull

 

 These boats, in most cases, have been designed, built, owned, and operated by local families. I speak in the present tense as this trade continues today as it did 100 plus years ago. Different boat designs and past generations of haulers but the same goal, Trap Lobster.  Families still maintain their specific fishing grounds and specific geographic areas have their specific fishing seasons. Whole harbors are dedicated to this one trade, Lobster Hauling. When hauling season is over some boats switch to other types of fishing but inevitably return to laying their traps in season.
There is so much to say about these fishermen & fisherwomen and their boats but I will not attempt to be a historian and focus on building this kit. However, I strongly recommend that you read up on the subject of people, their boats, and lobster on the down eastern seaboard, Canada included. Here are a few great books that you might have a hard time putting down.
