The model was built exactly the same as the big boat
Her dimensions are L.O.A. 39 ft., beam 10 ft. 9 in., draft 5 ft., tonnage 12 t.m.
The model was built from a sheet of 1/8 in. ply, 2 ft. x 2 ft., for the planking, and 4 ft. 8 in. x 6 in. of 1/4 ply, for the building board, moulds, beams, etc.
Kingfisher was built in 1897 as a racing smack, for an owner of a large fishing fleet—as a boat for his best skipper and crew.
Her history is as interesting as her shape. Kingfisher was the fastest smack built, so many other smack owners have told me. This was probably due to her wine-glass shape, rather than the full-bellied look of the more normal type of smack.
