  • The oars are obtained from unique beachwood pieces and turned individually; similarly the harpoons, the rudder, oarlocks and the unique masts, in order to be as accurate as possible to the original project. The compass, used for long distances and the chest for food are made by hickory. The ropes’ basket, with their typical circular shape, reproduces one of the basic instrument for whaling: the rope shouldn’t curb itself, once the harpoon to which it was tied was troweed against the prey, keeping a linear trajectory. The end of the rope was anchored to the hull, so that the harpooned whale died by exhaustion pulling the spear. Then, anchored at the bow, was brought as booty to the nearest port. The special feature of this model is that each piece, excluding brassing and cotton sails are handmade by single piece of wood.
