During her 80 years and 37 voyages, the Charles W. Built in 1841 at the Hillman Brothers Shipyard on the Accent River in New Bedford, MA, she was registered at 351 tons.
Her whaling days came to end in 1921 with the decline of whale oil prices. Designed by naval architect Ben Lankford, our Model Shipways' kit replicates the Charles W. Lankford's precise drawings (a set of six) are based on plans for the 1983 restoration, provided by Mystic Seaport.A 40 page step-by-step instruction book includes many of the author's own photographs of the reconstructed vessel. Plank-on-bulkhead construction of the Charles W. Morgan by Model Shipways uses laser cut basswood for the hull components. We supply 75 feet of copper sheathing to cover the hull below the waterline.
Wooden yards and mast, 140 deadeyes in three sizes, nearly 200 single and double blocks, four diameters of black standing rigging and two of tan running rigging duplicate the rig plan of the original whaler. Seven whaleboats are to be assembled from laser cut wooden parts.Display base and pedestals not included. Display base & pedestals not included. Length 30-3/4" / Height 25".
