Launched in 1910 at Gloucester, STILETTO was a semi-knockabout designed by Thomas McManus. She engaged in every branch of the fishing business, from mackerel seining to freighting bulk herring cargoes from Newfoundland. Waterline lift hull of basswood with detailed ironwork and fittings, accurately rigged, authentically painted and fitted out for the mackerel fisheries. This model is third in a series of 1/8" scale fishing schooners being built by Mr. Ronnberg, many of which will replicate his larger 3/8" scale models now on display at Mystic Seaport Museum.
