Refuge (1885); Fishing vessel; Leith baldie

Scale: 1:12. Full hull model of the 'Refuge' (1885), a Leith baldie. The model is decked, equipped and rigged, with the sails set. The name ‘Refuge’ is on the port and starboard bows along with ‘LH 1139’, which also appears on the sail.

This model represents a baldie of the type used for line fishing off Scotland’s east coast. The further growth of the baldie – the name is believed to be a corruption of Garibaldi – and its complete decking, subsequently produced the two-masted sea-going herring boat, the fifie.
