Is your model based on the Cornish sailing barges, really nice model, am tempted but Lockdown has put a downer on traveling.

Never came across a Thames one like that including gaff mulie rig. So what type of barge is it modelled on, having worked once on the Thame estuary many years ago I am interested.

It is quite a lot like the older trading barges, I have an old one partially built and they would call in and beach themselves and sell and trade from there.  I have an Inshore Trader kit and there is quite a similarity.

I mush be honest I don't know.
It's not a Thames barge.
You can travel now.
It is here if you want it.


Kind regards and stay safe
