Voyager Model of
The large brass fret
contains about 60% davits, 30% boat chocks and 10% boat fittings. There are five
styles of davits. Each davit is one piece but folds onto itself to add extra
thickness and a three-dimensional quality. Rigging and pulleys are worked into
each one-piece davit and almost every piece is relief-etched. These are the best
davits available, although each davit will require precision to fold. The boat
chocks come in three styles. Two styles are used to cradle the heavier boats
with three chocks. The two end chocks have deck support cables, while the middle
chock does not. The third style of chocks is for the lighter boats. As with the
davits, the chocks are folded together to increase the thickness of the chock.
Each chock is relief-etched. Also found on the brass fret are boat rudders and
two types of rudder mounting plates. The smaller fret contains all boat
fittings. For engine powered boats there are eight propellers and eight
keel/shaft fittings. For oared boats there are 33 oars.
