    The "HERO" Ship in Mahogany and Glass Freestanding Case USA 20th Century This model was hand-built by artist Kenneth Britten in 1999 and depicts the English “Smack” HERO. The model’s dimensions are 44"L x 41 1/4"H x 17 1/2"W for a scale of 3/8"=1'. The model is beautifully presented in a glass and mahogany case and is an exact replica of the original ship. The original ship was built around 1825 and sailed from the port of Leith near the Scottish capitol of Edinburgh. The ship was a heavy, burdensome vessel with a short, deep hull, small deadrise, rounded bilge, a full entrance and a hollow run; all of which gave good cargo capacity and enabled the vessel to sit upright in harbors that dried out at low water. Hedderwick's plans give dimensions as 73' 2" (keel and forerake) by 23' 6" by 12' 6" and 173 tons.

The London (model) three-masted square-rigged ship built New York 1770/1771 for English owners. Measuring 92½ feet long by 26½ feet in beam, the vessel was known as a well-built, fast-sailing merchant vessel with good cargo capacity for its size. In 1776, it was purchased by the British Royal Navy as an armed ship, renamed the Grasshopper and used as a convoy escort protecting groups of British ships against their enemies.

I will live on a sailboat in my lifetime even if it is only 1 week. I pick this one.
