Having seen one being built in another build log I ordered me a kit.

MK 0101 Ships Boat

The kit seems to build to a nice boat but seems incomplete.

While looking at completed kit it show what appears to be fittings for two sail masts. Yet nothing is included.

Where could one find examples of how to complete the masts, yards, sails and how to rig them.

I would like to display as fully equipped boat for display as stand alone model

Ship’s boats were rigged with either a one mast sloop rig with gaff main, bowsprit and head sail. This was usually the larger launch. Another option is for the smaller boats, two lateen rigged sails like that of the Bounty’s launch in which Bligh sailed to Timor in. Simple enough to do, depending on the scale just make sure you use smaller 2mm blocks. Below are a couple examples. One thing they do emit and what these boats would have used was lee boards either side as they were shallow draught and didn’t have a weighted keel as such. 8168AA6A-1366-471B-AC34-5AB950AA97EE.jpeg93783F55-103B-42A1-A976-5BE403FE4C0D.jpegDFD80A23-AA1C-41AF-84EB-0A2C3B41C3B6.jpeg53BEC72C-346D-462B-A890-C436C163F5A7.jpeg396EE25E-60D2-49FA-B4F0-449941E5FDA7.jpeg
