That's a bigga boat!


I'm guessing it weighs 45 or more kilograms as it is in the picture. With it's gear and ballasted out, I'm guessing it will be between 90 and 115 kilos or 200-250 pounds. That's a lot of boat.

If it can be floated now, I'd do that and measure how much weight it takes to put it on it's waterline. You'll want a ballast torpedo that attached under the hull and can be removed. A capped pipe full of scrap lead and weighing 45-50 kilos seems about right.

Transport will be the biggest thing to deal with. Unless you own a box truck with a lift, the only practical way to move it will be a trailer. The easiest would be a boat trailer and launch it like any small boat - but boat trailers are open and the rigging would not take the stress of driving down the road. A box trailer fixes that, but you won't be able to back it into the water to launch like a boat trailer.

For sail control, to start with, I would set up what Brooks calls the Parallelogram System, where the braces are attached to the yards the same distance from the center as the arm that controls them below deck - as opposed to attaching the braces out near the tips of the yards as done on real ships. A model this size I think a linear actuator servo would be the best thing to turn the yards with, I don't know that any winch or sail arm servo would have the guts for it.

The masts should be made in their sections; lower mast, top mast, top-gallant mast. I'd make them pretty much the way real masts are made, with the lowers glued up in pieces and woulded. A single stick that size will likely warp and twist. The best wood would be pitch pine if you can get it; spruce if you can't.

The masts would probably best be tabernacled or deck stepped, so they fold back onto the hull. It's going to be a very tall rig, and that would be the easiest to deal with.

Those are my thoughts off the top of my head.

So, is it the Satissima Trinidad?

Wow - you are really adding a lot of detail. It will be an amazing model.
One guy in England had his big model on a launching cart that went into the water like a boat trailer. He also had a box trailer that the launching cart would roll into, so tahat the boat is protected during driving.

Jerry was right. A lot of the ballast weight needs to be attached outside of the hull, suspended under the keel.

Unbelievable if you ask me! Excellent attention to detail & jaw dropping when it comes to size. Will you need to obtain a license to sail it?

Please do feel free to post as many photos as you'd care to.
