Donegal paddling curragh, port by unknown zoom

Donegal paddling curragh, port

Scale: circa 1:6. Full hull model of a Donegal paddling curragh (circa 1845), of Bunbeg and Tory Island type (Ireland). It is based on a prototype found in the Irish National Museum in Dublin and has a hazel wand framework covered with hide and double wands on the floor. A fresh untanned animal hide was stretched over the framework. As the skin dried, it shrank to produce a tight, waterproof hull form. Gunwales project beyond the stern allowing it to be upended for drying without risk to the hide. By 1845 canvas began to replace the use of hide.
