This is a rowboat I made several years ago. (maybe thats why it is dusty… The camera flash realy finds every dust particle…) It is approximately in scale 1:8.

It is a model of a common Swedish rowboat used at the west coast that has its roots in the Viking ships. The type is “Bohuseka” in Swedish. The type is still in use but as plastic boats instead.

The sitting boards and the top board are teak. The stern, fore, bottom board and ribs (?) not sure of the terminology, are oak. Then the other boards are pine. All as the original has.
The finish is the same varnish as the original boats have.
