Master Korabel Tender “Avos” 1806, the 8-gun tender of the Russian-American company trading fleet,
A detailed woden kit of the 2-mast schooner, reconstructed following archive documents and drawings. An easy to build internal hull design allows the kit to be built even by non-experienced model builders.

The kit has double planking, with pre-cut planks, both draft and finish.

Short historical reference

The 8-gun tender “Avos” was launched on 1st July 1806 ?. in Novo-Arkhangelsk in Alaska (now Sitka, USA). It was a first ship of the Russian-American company’s trading fleet.

On 27th of July 1806 tender “Avos”, commanded by 22-years old warrant officer Gavrila Davidov and crewed by 12 local craftsmen, departed on a secret expedition to establish the interests of the Russian Empire in the waters around of the Southern Kuril Islands and the Sakhalin. The expedition also included the ship “Juno” and it was generally guided by lieutenant Nicolay Khvostov
During 1808 shipping season tender “Avos” under command of lieutenant Sukin was shipping goods to America.

On 11th of October 1808, while sailing from Kadiak to Novo-Arkhangelsk, during the storm, tender “Avos” was wrecked near the coast of Chichagov island near the Alexander archipelago.
