A sambuk dhow
A full hull model of a cargo vessel, plank-on-frame, rigged model with the sails furled. Made in the Persian Gulf, South Arabia.
Scale: 1:22. A model of a sambuk dhow made entirely of wood and partly painted in realistic colours, the remainder is varnished. The hull is light blue at the waterline with black boot-topping and keel. The remainder of the model is unpainted. The hull is made plank-on-frame and the hull shape is that of a typical dhow. The stem-post is steeply raked, terminating in decorative carving. The pointed bow has a very short bowsprit rigged on the starboard side. The two masts are lateen rigged, the forward one being the larger of the two. The two sails are made from an off-white cotton material and both are depicted furled. There are two hatches with removable hatch covers and other equipment includes ten oars, two anchors, a compass pinnacle, a stove and kettle, cooking pot, lamp, a fishing trap, buoy, lead weight and bailer (made from a cartridge). The rudder is steeply raked and its tiller is rigged to a working steering wheel.
