Description

Details

*Limited Edition* 

This boat type was originally built in about 1930 by local shipbuilders in the small Danish towns of Klitmøller and Vorupør , and represented a considerable improvement of the boats of the time. Since then, no appreciable changes have been made, althrough the boats have become a few feet longer and now have a wheel house under cover. Havmaagen is a stable and seaworthy vessel. Its rather round design limits the speed to approx. 6 knots. Weather permitting, fishing starts early in the morning and continues all day. The boats are lowered and raised be means of an electric winch, with wires embedded in a block firmly anchored a good distance from shore. Before being hauled ashore, the boats are sailed as far up on the beach as the waves can push them. The winch hook is then attached to the bow irons for hauling.

This kit features:

plank on frame construction, laser cut plywood keel and frame components, wooden superstructure and decks, hull and deck fittings in brass and/or plastic, masts in ramin, rigging cord in various sizes. Includes Full size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English Text.
