Bottle - Motor Sloop in a Bottle
Date Added: 05 February 2018

"I saw in a book about Dutch yacht design a picture of a small model of a so called steam barge. But I did not see a steam boiler or pipe. So I assumed that it was a motor sloop. The hull was not a problem and a made it in two parts. In the hull I put e few seats and at the stern a screw and rudder. On the deck I made a solar tent, 3 little masts whit flags, tiller and two rowing belts. On the bow- and stern side on deck I made railings. I put both sides in to the bottle and put them together. I put some resin in the bottle and let the sloop down into the resin. When the resin became hard I put the solar tent and the flags whit the mast into the hull. Height of bottle/glass 220 mm, Wideness of bottle/glass 55 mm, Wideness of bottleneck 20 mm. Size of the sloop: Length 55 mm, Wideness 20 mm, Height 26 mm." Frans Dekker
