This is a collection of boats model that I have already sold or have been commissioned to build.
I was commissioned to build this model a couple of years ago by a man who wanted to give his father a model of a boat he owned many years ago.
Flying Dog Deadrise
This model I built for the Flying Dog brewery to accompany their dead rise beer. A beer that is brewed with OLD BAY and is best paired with shrimp, corn, and Maryland Blue Crab. Dead Rise was brewed to celebrate OLD BAY’s 75th anniversary and proceeds benefit True Blue, a program that advocates on behalf of the Chesapeake Bay’s 5,500 watermen.
Deadrise Crabbing Skiff
This boat model is that of a typically Deadrise crabbing skiff, which are smaller boat that allowed for greater mobility in narrow and/or shallow areas. This allowed them to harvest crabs in area that larger ships could not reach. I had the good fortune to sell this boat to a pair of enthusiasts while I was participating in the Antique Boat Show at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
