Good boat for first time wood boat model builder who wants to develop model woodworking and finishing skills...
Preshaped hull, simple deck furniture, simple rigging, no sails make it an easy build,
The preshaped hull and all the parts require a fair amount of sanding and shaping to finish properly.
The simplicity of its construction means that it can be made into a nice display piece in a short period of time.
