Full hull model, Bridgwater flatner, port broadside
Full hull model of a Bridgwater flatner (circa 1940), built at a scale of 1:24. The details on the model, such as a sideways rise in the floor as well as a camber fore and aft, are quite correct. These boats were used on the shores of the Bristol Channel, where the tides go out a great distance, exposing mud flats. Fishermen would go out when the water was over the flats and try to find the channels running through the mud banks to minimise the chance of getting stranded as the tide ebbed.
