Model Shipways 18th Century Longboat 1:48

18th Century Longboat 1:48 Scale

The longboat was the largest boat aboard an 18th century ship. The ship’s principal lifeboat, it was also used for coming and going to the ship to transport supplies and take empty water casks ashore to be filled with fresh water. Longboats were kept fully provisioned at all times in case of an emergency.
Longboats were carvel built with the planks meeting flush at the seams rather than overlapping. A full bow, high sides and fine aft lines made it fairly seaworthy in heavy winds and steep waves. The interior was fitted with thwarts to accommodate eight to ten oarsmen. Many longboats were equipped with a removable mast and sails to allow for more extended voyages. A ship’s gun could also be mounted in the bow.

The pinnace was a lightly built, carvel planked boat. Designed to be rowed it had fewer than ten oars. Its only duty was transporting the captain and other officers from their anchored ship to the dockyards. Carrying crew and provisions was the job of heavier boats like the longboat or launch.

Model Shipways Armed Virginia Sloop, American Privateer, 1768 1:48

Armed Virginia Sloop, American Privateer, 1768 1:48 Scale

Privateers were privately owned vessels whose owners were commissioned by the government to carry on naval warfare. Privateering is not considered piracy, which is performed without government authorization. During the 18th century, many small single masted ships were armed and used for privateering. These Chesapeake-built vessels were fast and easily maneuverable with a graceful sheer and a low freeboard. They evolved from the Bermuda sloops of c. 1740 and the trim, sharp Virginia schooners found in Steel’s Naval Architecture of 1805.

Model Shipways Chaperon, Sternwheel Steam Packet 1884

Chaperon, Sternwheel Steam Packet 1884

The steam packet Chaperon was built for trade traffic at Chambersburg, Ohio in 1884. At that time river shipping was inexpensive. A bushel of coal was carried from Pittsburgh to New Orleans for the price of a first class postage stamp. But, the Ohio River was shallow during the summer and often choked by ice in the winter. This made steamboat travel seasonal and delays frequent.

Model Shipways Charles W Morgan, Whaling Bark 1:64

Charles W Morgan, Whaling Bark 1:64 Scale

During her 80 years and 37 voyages, the Charles W. Morgan caught and processed more whales than any other whaling ship in history. Built in 1841 at the Hillman Brothers Shipyard on the Accent River in New Bedford, MA, she was registered at 351 tons. The Morgan was originally built fully ship-rigged, but shortly after the Civil War she was modified to become a double topsail bark. Her whaling days came to end in 1921 with the decline of whale oil prices. Purchased for Mystic Seaport in 1941, she's now a beautifully restored monument to the men who built and sailed her.

Donald McKay, one of the greatest designers of his time, built the Flying Fish in 1851 at East Boston Massachusetts. Flying Fish was registered at the Boston Custom House as a ship of 1,505 tons, with a hull length of 207 feet, and a beam of 22 feet, and a beam of 22 feet. She sailed from New York to San Francisco in 92 days - only three days short of the record set by her sister ship, the Flying Cloud.

Model Shipways Harriet Lane, US Civil War Gunboat

Harriet Lane, US Civil War Gunboat

Built in New York for the U.S. Revenue Service in 1857, the Harriet Lane was powered by a combination of steam and sail. She was 180 ft. long, with a 30 ft. beam, and carried a 30 lb. Parrott rifle, plus three 9" smooth-bore Dahlgrens. Her design clearly illustrates the transition from sail to steam, as steam engines were not entirely reliable, and power was not yet sufficient to allow the elimination of sail.

Model Shipways Mayflower, 1620

Mayflower, 1620

On September 16, 1620, The Mayflower set out from Plymouth, England. Bound for Virginia to establish a permanent colony in North America, she carried 102 men, women and children. Many of the passengers were Separatists fleeing religious persecution in Europe. After two months at sea, the ship dropped anchor at what is now Provincetown, MA. It was almost 200 miles farther north than planned, but winter was approaching, so the Pilgrims decided to stay. Half of the colony did not survive that first winter, but the rest lived on and prospered.

New Bedford Whaleboat 1850-1870 1:16 Scale

From 1720 to 1920 nearly 60,000 whaleboats were consumed by the American whaling industry. With a useful life of no more than three years, whaleboats were discarded on the spot throughout the coastal U.S. and around the world. Remarkably, only a dozen or two have survived to become part of today's museum collections.

Model Shipways Niagara, US Brig 1813 1:64

Niagara, US Brig 1813 1:64 Scale

Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry took command of the American naval forces at Lake Erie in the spring of 1813. The famous battle with the British fleet began on September 10, when Perry raised a flag bearing the words "Don’t Give Up The Ship" and sailed into action.

After three hours of murderous gunfire, Perry was forced to abandon his flagship, the Lawrence. In a daring move, he was rowed a half mile to the Niagara, from which he continued the attack. After the battle, Perry returned to the shattered Lawrence and penned a quick message to General Harrison, “We have met the enemy and they are ours.” This decisive victory at the Battle of Lake Erie ensured American control of the Great Lakes during the War of 1812.

Model Shipways Pride of Baltimore 1:64

In 1974, Baltimore city officials decided to build a replica of a 19th century clipper to serve as good-will ambassador for the city. The ship, named Pride of Baltimore, was launched at Baltimore's Inner Harbor on February 27, 1977. She was lost in micro-squall (an intense blast of wind building to hurricane velocity within seconds) on May 14, 1986. The city then commissioned a larger sister-ship, and the Pride of Baltimore II was launched on April 30, 1989.

The privateer Rattlesnake was built at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1780. Despite her moderate size of 89 feet on deck, she was fast and weatherly. She sailed with 85 men and carried twenty 6-pounders. She captured over a million dollars worth of British goods on her first cruise, establishing a reputation as a formidable vessel. The British ordered her captured at any cost. She was seized by the 44-gun H.M.S. Assurance in 1783, sent to England and taken into the Royal Navy. She was sold out of service in 176.

USN Picket Boat No.1 1864 1:24 Scale

Picket Boat Number One, a steam launch, was built in 1864 to support of the U.S. Navy's blockade of the Confederacy. Outfitted with a spar-torpedo, she could also attack larger enemy vessels. On the dark night of 27-28 October 1864, Lieutenant William B. Cushing and his crew took Picket Boat Number One up river to Plymouth, North Carolina. In one of the Civil War's most daring naval actions, they attacked the Confederate ironclad Albemarle, sinking it with the spar torpedo. Only Lt. Cushing and one other man escaped, and Picket Boat Number One was lost, but the Union forces on the North Carolina sounds were freed of the great threat presented by the continued existence of the Albemarle.
