Original text on model:
"Study 1929 Scale 5' per 1" " (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)

"A scale of 5' per 1" translates into a scale of 1:60 which would imply a vessel of an unrealistic LOA of 150ft." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. March 26, 2009.)

Note: Vessels that appear in the records as not built, a cancelled contract, a study model, or as a model sailboat are listed but not counted in the list of vessels built from a model.
