Has anyone got any photos of this style of barge please? If there are any restored 1 to 1 scale Admirals Barges in original colour schemes that would be great.

I think I will create a new thread titled Admirals Barge, it might catch the eyes of those with information on it.

Hi Tim,

Are you sure you have posted this on the correct thread?

This barge had no mast for sails, the only mast was a short one on the top of the cabin and as far as I can tell was not wired. All the articles from Model Maker are in my album of the same name

Hi Tim, if you have a look at the plan in Rodgers album, it sets out the cables etc for the mast. The pictures of the build in the old magazine shows some detail, rather blury though when you enlarge it. It appears that shackles were used which makes sense.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
