Hi fellow LJ’s, What you see is a model of a model of the stitched ninth century wooden sailing I sailed in during my absence in your midst. At the background you can see a 1: 15 model which was built by students of the Jewej of Muscat Project, It is to be presented to Royalty after the base has been made overseas. I helped ‘finishing’ of the model to the required standard.
You can also see the picture of the real ship under sails.
The second 1:15 model shown with sails and details was presented to Singapore along with the real ship.
The tiny model I made in my spare time was gifted to a friend and crew member.
Thanks for looking,

-- tuanie

Beautiful work…Your models are so exact….and the detail is exquisite.

I was wondering how did the real boat sail? She has a very wide beam…. From the looks, her fastest tack would probably be on a beam reach…do you know how tight she can sail upwind? I would suspect she can only get to about 30-40%....and with that wide beam she probably is pretty stable (of course the keel would add or detract from that)....I have always liked the double ender design….not only is it more pleasing to the eye but it keeps you drier on the downwind….and they tend not to roll upwind as much as the flatter sterns do….

Sounds like you are enjoying your after voyage….great to see your beautiful projects again….Looking forward to seeing more again.
