Sloop Boat

Sold 

By: Erik A.R. Ronnberg Sr., (1909 - 1989)

Cape Ann shipbuilders developed these ‘sloop boats’ during the late 19th century, which were fast, seaworthy and worked the ‘longshore and market fisheries’. These sloops with an average size of 50’ overall were smaller and more economical than the standard fishing schooner. This model represents a clipper bow sloop and it has a variety of deck furniture & gear, a traditional dory, and a single work-action figure to help represent scale. It is authentically rigged with main gaff in a lowered position. Research & plans: Howard I. Chapelle, The History of American Sailing Ships, 1935
