The midsection shows a slightly rising straight floor, short in length and fairing into a full, round bilge, with some tumi)le-home in the topside. The body is carried well fore-and-aft, and the entrance and run are both short and quite full. There is a short quarterdeck, and the depth of bulwarks, 32 inches, is vinusually great for a fishing schooner, suggesting that this vessel was intended to work in the coasting trade as well as in the fishery. The vessel was about 64 feet 6 inches moulded length at rail, 16 feet 6 inches moulded beam, about 7 feet moulded depth, and probably drew about 8 feet 6 inches at post. Scale of model is '- inch to the foot. Given by Captain Joseph \V. Collins. FISHING SCHOONER, about 1840-45 Builder's Half-Model, usnm 54421 This half-model represents a large New England- built fishing schooner of before 1845. Obtained at Esse.x, Massachusetts, it was formerly thought to be that of the small smack Storm Ring, whose rigged model is in the Watercraft Collection bearing the date 1880, but examination of the models shows this to be incorrect. The registry of the Storm King has not been found. The model is to a scale of 'i inch to the foot, producing a \essel measuring about 77 feet on the rails, 23 feet moulded beam, and 7 feet 6 inches moulded depth, an unusually large schooner for the fisheries at the estimated date; it is probably for a schooner to ije employed in the Newfoundland Grand Banks fishery. The half-model shows a very full-bowed codfishing schooner having a long but full run, a straight raking
