Toward the end of the 18th century, “Virginia built” schooners were used as pilot boats from the Delaware Capes to Hatteras. Between 1785 and 1805, these fast and handy vessels were also used by the British and French navies as dispatch boats and tenders. During the American Revolution and the War of 1812, the US government issued privateering commissions to many privately-owned vessels of this type and many captured ones were taken into British service as tenders and dispatch boats. Built by Jim Martin, the 1:50 scale basswood model of this gaff-rigged schooner features a planked and framed hull, standing and running rigging, stitched cloth sails, and numerous other details. Presented on a 14" x 4", maple base with brass legend, the overall dimensions: 19" x 21" x 5". JLK
