This wonderful and comprehensive model depicts the 78-ton "Marblehead" schooner, Hannah, probably originally owned by Colonel John Lee of Manchester, after her fitting out and commissioning for service in the Continental Navy, which had leased her in 1775. Hannah was nearly destroyed by HMS Nautilus , but was secretly rebuilt and re-named Lynch in 1776. Representing the culmination of extensive research by Mr. Ronnberg, this model reflects the best efforts of recent scholarship on Hannah. The model has a solid laminated basswood hull construction, with built-up or applied deck furniture. It includes all appropriate deck gear, lifeboat, armament, sweeps and fittings of wood or metal; all authentically painted. The rigging configuration is also based on current research and includes fine, silk-span furled sails. The model is mounted on a custom mahogany baseboard with raised inner plinth with mirror insert; glazed cover trimmed in brass.
