The Ranger was a typical American cutter built in the first half of the 19th century, used basically as surveillance and coastguard vessels. It was armed with a large carronade installed in the centre of the deck that rotated on a circular guideway, permitting rapid fire from both sides of the hull with a single weapon.
Note the particular elegant line of the Ranger, emphasized by the depth of the keel at the stern. She is a double plank-on-bulkhead kit with white metal fittings which include the tiller, bill, helm, belaying pins, anchors, mast caps, cabin windows and door, handrails, cleats, oarlocks, and many others. The blocks are made of deadwood and the deadeyes are made of walnet.
