Open aaks could only work on canals or small rivers. For the Rhine river with its bigger swell a higher freeboard was required or a closed deck ("Gedeckte Aak").
By the end of 19th century the towing by horses was replaced by steam tug boats.
The ship model was built with sails. There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!
This model of a Gedeckte Aak is a beautiful, fine piece of work. The ship model is 1 : 40 scale. Length is 62 cm, width 14 cm, height 51 cm.
The ship model can be taken out of the stand, e.g. for transport.
The price of the model is 500 Euro, plus transport cost.
Transport: The ship model can be secured in a transport box. This way,
truck or air cargo over long distances can be safely done.
If you live close by, picking up the model with your car may be a good way, too.
The ship model is available at my showroom in Recklinghausen. Here is information on how to order a ship model and how the transport can be arranged.
