Andrea Gail - Beginner Version
The Andrea Gail, an un-inspected commercial fishing vessel departed Gloucester Harbour, Massachusetts, September 20, 1991 with six crew members on board. The crew intended to make a fishing trip for swordfish in the area of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, Canada. The vessel began its return voyage to Gloucester, MA. on October 26-27, 1991. On October 30, 1991, the vessel was reported overdue by the owner, Mr. Robert Brown. An extensive air and sea search was conducted utilizing U.S. and Canadian Cape Cod MA. However, the search did not locate the vessel or any of the crew members. The vessel and six crew embers remain missing and are presumed lost at sea in a major storm, referred to as the "Perfect Storm" by a meteorologist and made famous by Sebastian Junger's book (the book was later turned into a Hollywood movie). The sword fishermen were Captain William "Billy" Tyne, Robert "Bobby" Shatford of Gloucester, Dale Murphy and Michael "Bugsy" Moran of Bradenton Beach FL., David "Sully" Sullivan and Alfred Pierre of New York City.

All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!
