One of the most famous names in sailing history is the Bluenose. Launched in 1921 from Nova Scotia as a fishing vessel to operate in the rough waters off the coast of Newfoundland, she became very famous for her speed, winning all the great classic sailing races on the American east coast. Her glorious career was finished in 1946 on a reef near Haiti, but her memory is still going strong. Her fame has been embossed in history, with its image now found on the Canadian dime and stamps. A true copy - Bluneose II - was launched in 1964.The hull of the Billing Boats kit 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!
