This is the Bluenose a famous racing fishing schooner under the red duster or Candaian Flag. She ( the ship) won the fisherman:s trophy for speed a number of times and was of course a popular working vessel as well. there was some controversy that the Bluenose was designed as a racing yacht- but surely equpped for the fishing trqde and rugged water operation. The Bluenose has long been a popular subject for ship modellers.
