Gallery: Ernestina in SL™ v1.25


The Schooner Ernestina is a turn-of-the-century Grand Banks Fishing vessel, a rare example of the classic vessel used in the age of sail out of New Bedford, Massachusetts.  It is a predecessor to the kind of fishing fleet in the movie “The Perfect Storm“, and had to deal with weather of a similar kind in an age when steam power was just beginning to displace these majestic and hand-crafted wood sailing craft.

This version is not yet distributed, as work to reduce prims continues. Geek technocrati: Sculpty prims will replace the existing build where praticable.  In turn, this will allow for further detailing the deck hardware, as well as adding the running rigging (particle rope script).
