Service vessel; Whaler; Montagu whaler

Scale: 1:12. A half longitudinal sectional model of a fully equipped pulling and sailing service whaler (circa 1900), mounted on crutches secured to a baseboard. The hull is built in plank on frame fashion and is complete with a variety of fittings including thwarts, floors, gratings, mast tabernacle, copper buoyancy tanks and a rudder with tiller. It is quite probable that this model was made as a training aid for teaching seamanship to naval cadets. It is painted in the traditional battleship grey with varnished wood on the gunwale and seating in the stern sheets area.
