This is the story of coal merchant and carrier James Smart of Chalford and his associates in the 1880s and 1890s. Regularly using the Stroudwater and Thames & Severn canals, Smart’s narrowboats also traded up the River Severn to the Midlands and over the Cotswolds to the Thames Valley and Wiltshire, whilst his barges traded down the Severn and around the upper Bristol Channel. The story is based on over one thousand surviving letters, postcards and telegrams written to James Smart by his employees, his suppliers and his customers, and these have been linked up with related voyages recorded in the tonnage books of the relevant canals. The story gives a wonderful insight into the lives of Victorian barge and boatmen, and shows how James Smart coped with managing his far-flung business in the days before the telephone.

H.M.S. Pegasus was the sixth vessel built of the Swan Class of ship rigged sloop, of which twenty five of the class were built from 1766 to 1780. Pegasus, as with the entire Swan class, was designed by Williams and her construction was ordered by the Admiralty on 1st August 1775 to be built at Sheerness Dockyard. The keel was laid in May 1775 and launched on 27th December 1776. The Swan class of 6th Rate sloops were unusually attractive for the class of vessel, with not only very sleek hull lines but also the unusual amount of decoration for the size of vessel. They were built just before the Admiralty issued orders that all vessels (especially lesser rates) were to have the minimal amount of decoration and carvings to save any unnecessary costs, due to the seemingly ever continuing war with France and other nations. There is little remaining about H.M.S. Pegasus's operational career, but from what little evidence there is, Pegasus was commissioned mainly for convoy escort and dispatch duty. Pegasus had a very short operation career, foundering off Newfoundland on 31st October 1777, her sister, H.M.S. Fly also foundered off Newfoundland some years later in 1802. The Swan Class measured 97' 7" on the gun deck and displaced 300 tons. They carried 125 officers and men and initially carried 14 guns (later 16) and 16 swivel guns.

The kit includes laser cut frames for keel & bulkheads, exotic wood strip for hull planking, and all new photoetched parts (which include footrope stirrups, hammock cranes, oars and other boat fittings, complete stunsail boom fittings, decoration, etc.), . Also included is the wooden deck planking, masts and spars,?resin and wooden fittings. The instruction booklet is very detailed, taking you through every step of construction.

"Gold gleamed on bows and silver glittered on each vessels. The fleet was magnificent and its captain could conquer entire worlds just showing it off. The sight of the fleet itself could terrorize the enemy". King Olaf Tryggvesson called his drakkar "Ormen Lange", the Long Snake, and it become a legend of the North Sea. These drakkars were decorated with a dragon head figurehead and could reach 48 meters long. Drakkars had to be light and extremely manoeuvrable.

The "Pinta" together with the Nina and the Santa Maria, formed the fleet for the voyage of discovery led by Christopher Columbus. She was originally lateen rigged with one mast square rigged (caravela redonda) but was refitted just 10 days into the expedition leaving just the rear mast lateen rigged. There are not many contemporary evidences on the two caravels, except for the few oblique references that can be found in a resume of Columbus Journal. Nevertheless two things are pretty sure: both ships belonged to the Pinzon family and at the very beginning both of them had lateen sails. Then during the first stop at the Canary Island the Pinta replaced its lateen sails with square sails. This operation, together with the substitution of the mast delayed the departure of four weeks. Columbus always referred to Niña and Pinta as the Caravels
