This is a typical French fishing schooner used during the 1800s for catching cod in the rich Icelandic fishing banks. These little ships were fast and quite maneuverable. "La Rose" is a double plank-on-bulkhead kit. Woods such as walnut and lime are used for the planking, wooden masts, and spars.Brass fittings, sailcloth, rigging cord, and a silk flag are just a sample of the ornamentation that allows this kit a museum quality finish! At Ages of Sail, the kits we carry are always of the highest quality available, with laser-cut parts and ornamentation made from the finest materials for an authentic look. While this kit comes with detailed instructions, the "La Rose" is best for intermediate to advanced builders! Add a map to your own listings.
