Ship model customs schooner ALERT

  

The customs schooner ALERT was used at the beginning of the 19th century for the pursuit of smugglers at the US coast. For this reason she was equipped with large sails and a wedge-shaped deep keel to be a fast sailer close to the wind. The ALERT has been fitted with a rotating carronade located on deck mid-ship.


Here are some high-resolution photos of the ship model with 100 - 160 kB: a view from starboard, the foredeck, the carronade on midship deck, the rig, a view on the stern and view from starboard astern.
This ship model is 1 : 25 scale. Length is 88 cm, width 36 cm and height 70 cm. It was made by Mr. Rudolf Ferlemann, Muenster, Germany.
