Half-Hull Model Workshop

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

 

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Model Guild is offering a beginner’s model boatbuilding workshop from 9am—5pm on March 3 and 4, with limited participation and advanced registration needed.

The weekend workshop includes instruction on carving a solid half-hull model of the historic Chesapeake Bay tugboat Delaware. This model is band-sawed from a two-tone wood block and carved to the rounded shape of the Delaware’s hull. The cabin and pilot house are cut from the same pieces. The pieces are then shaped and sanded to a fine finish and then mounted on a baseboard to form a wall display piece.

The workshop is taught by the skilled craftsmen of CBMM’s Model Guild, who enjoy sharing their knowledge and techniques with CBMM members, visitors, and students.

Adults and children 12 years of age and older can participate in the workshop, with all tools and materials supplied, as well as some use of the Model Guild’s power tools. The two-day workshop takes place in CBMM’s Bay History building and is $80 for CBMM members or $110 for non-members, with participants taking home their half-hull model at the end of the workshop.

The competition is good-natured and provides an opportunity to exercise sailing skills without maintaining a full sized boat.

CBMM_ModelGuild_Martha_RayMaule2016

CBMM model guild’s Ray Maule recognized for Martha model

CBMM_ModelGuild_Martha_RayMaule2016(ST MICHAELS, MD – April 26, 2016) At HobbyTown USA of Easton, Md.’s April 23 model contest, Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Maritime Model Guild member Ray Maule was recognized with three awards for his model of CBMM’s 1934 draketail Martha. Maule’s 42” radio-controlled model received a People’s Choice award from guests to the event, along with first place in the adult category for maritime models, and a Judge’s Award in recognition of the fine craftsmanship and scale used in creating the wooden model.

CBMM_ModelGuild_Martha_DraketailThe model was designed in 2002 by Model Guild member Bill Price, who passed away in February, 2015. The project was recently picked back up by Maule, with the parts laser-cut for the model. The model can be seen at CBMM, with the Guild hoping to make the model kit available for purchase in the museum store.

Maule is a long-time member of CBMM’s Maritime Model Guild and Model Sailing Club, which meets each Monday at the museum. The group also hosts children’s model-making activities at CBMM’s signature events, along with monthly model skipjack races which begin this May 15, and the annual Maritime Model Expo, which is set for October 1-2, 2016.

CBMM_ModelGuild_Martha_DetailMartha—known as a Hooper Island draketail, or dovetail because of her unique stern design—was built by Bronza Parks in 1934 and was used for crabbing, oystering, and pleasure. She was donated to CBMM in 1989 by Mr. and Mrs. Paul L. Warner and can now be seen dockside or out on the Miles River as part of the museum’s floating fleet and the largest collection of Chesapeake Bay watercraft in the world. CBMM is also building a 25’ Hooper Island draketail modeled after Martha in its Apprentice for a Day public boatbuilding program, with the finished boat available for purchase this summer. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
