Model of a Dutch sailing cargo botter
Scale: unknown. A modern amateur-made model of a Dutch sailing cargo botter. The model has been carved from a solid block, to which the deck and accommodation has been added. The hull is painted white below the waterline with the rest of the hull, deck and superstructure finished in varnished wood, apart from a rubbing strake running from bow to stern which is painted black on a white background. Noticeable fittings include a pair of wooden hinged leeboards, a large windlass on the bow, a large cabin with skylight, and a large flat rudder with a fitted tiller. The rig comprises of a single pole mast, with a gaff mainsail, the upper yard of which is curved, and two headsails, a foresail and jib. There is a small bowsprit that can be run in and out when not in use. All three sails have been stitched to indicate sail clothes and are complete with reefing points.
