Spray (BJ-KLW201) Length 25″ / Height 19″ / Scale 3/8″=1′
An incredible sailing feat — in 1895, the down-on-his-luck seafarer Captain Joshua Slocum sailed around the world alone in his rebuilt 100 year old oyster smack SPRAY. It took him three years, and the book he wrote about his adventures is a classic. Thirty-nine feet long and originally built as a sloop, SPRAY was re-rigged en route as a yawl for easier single handed sailing.
The kit is complete and includes easy-to-follow instructions, full size plans, rigging line, sailcloth, and finely-cast Britannia pewter fittings, with all necessary wood for planking, deckhouses and spars.
Many parts are laser-cut for accuracy and ease of construction.
Display cradle included.
Due to the complexity of the hull shape and the extra thick planking, we recommend this kit for only those modelers who feel comfortable with plank-on-frame construction.
