By Model Expo Plank-on-Bulkhead Kit. Originating in 16th century Europe, the Pinky received its name from its uplifted, narrow, or pinked stern.These sturdy, seaworthy craft ruled the New England fishing industry from 1815 to 1840. They were gradually replaced by the larger, faster Gloucester schooners. Because of their stability and grace, many pinky schooners were built as pleasure boats in the late 1900 s. Plans are based on original drawings by Howard I. Chapelle for a typical Maine pinky, a boat he had built and actually sailed. Launched in 1937, Chapelle's. Was a two-masted schooner with a gaff rigged fore and aft mainsail, and single jib. Our Glad Tidings contains features never before seen on any commercially available kit.
We've laser cut the bulwark strakes, and our plans show the spiling and placement of the hull planking strips to exact dimension. Single plank-on-bulkhead construction uses laser cut plywood, basswood and cherry components. Expertly cast Britannia metal castings include anchor shanks, smoke stacks, windlass, cabin port-lights and turnbuckles. Brass is used for eyebolts, split rings, nail and other fittings.
Keel, stem, hull and deck planking strips, dowels for masts and yards are fine basswood. Six diameters of beige standing and black running rigging, deadeyes and four sizes of blocks guarantee a realistic replica.
