Thank you for your reply however the model on the photo is quite simple without the details I would need.
I  am looking for original pictures of Canute

Hi Marcin, I still have the plans for the St Canute that I built. I will dig them out and photocopy the winch details when I am next in the office. I can then scan it to my PC and attach it to either an email or post it here. Cheers Graham

Hi Marcin, I just read the thread again (woke up) and realised that what I proposed dosn't help. Cheers Graham

I'll also have a look through my 1,000,001 photos from shows I been to to see if I can find other pictures of a Canute.

In the mean time, does this help?

Don't think Canute had much luck. He prayed for the sea to retreat to no effect and it does not look as though his prayers in this painting are going to help him much!

He prayed to the sea to teach a lesson to a load of brown-nosing courtiers who were telling him how wonderful he was and how he could do anything. "Well here's something I can't do" he said and told the tide to go out.

Yes, tobyker, I did know that but it suited my story to tell it the way I did! In fact when he failed to stop the sea he said to his courtiers, "I canute do it".

After a bit of a search, I found this:

"In 1999 the ship was bought by Christer Strandel from Stocka in Sweden, and the ship was renamed " Stockvik ". In May of 1999 the ship sailed from England to Terneuzen in Holland where some repairs were made. "
http://www.ndmbc.co.uk/Scale.html

Which after a lot of tedious dead links lead me to:

The S S Stockvik  Swedish tug renovation project using rivets for the plating

See if they will send you some photos....

Also worth a look:

OK Roger - Some just say it was because he was a bit of a Knud case.
