Gaff Rigged Cutter

This is a gaff rigged cutter typical of the early 20th century. The hull length is 33". It is roughly 90% complete. The model has been temporarily ballasted and test floated. It is watertight. It may be finished as an operational R/C or display model.
All of the standing and running rigging is to scale and functional. All of the blocks are functional. The two-drum geared deck winch is manually operational. The bow sprite and top mast are manually retractable, as on the prototype. Two sheaves and the rudder tiller arm are installed below deck.
Due to failing eyesight I can no longer make the small precision parts needed to complete the running backstays, topsail halyards and their deck fittings. Included are various small fasteners, parts and a list of research sources. Two chainplate deadeyes are missing, but unfinished replacements are included.
Buyer must arrange for pickup and/or shipping from Chicago south suburbs. No exceptions.
