Ship's longboat; 'Medway', port
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of a ship's longboat, from the 'Medway' (1742) (SLR0328), built in the Georgian style. The model is fully planked (carved from the solid), equipped and rigged and shows a large windlass amidships which was used for laying and retrieving the mothership's anchors. Another model, SLR0329, shows the 'Medway' longboat unrigged and in frame. This is a rare example of an 18th century model of a ship's boat complete with its original mast and rigging. The longboat was generally the largest boat carried on board ship. It could be towed astern or stored on deck on top of the spare topmast spars in the waist area, between the fore and main masts. It could be either rowed or sailed.
