Unlike other books on the subject, that provide a diagram and step by step instructions Capt. Dan attempts to teach model builders to understand the basic principals involved. After reading this heavily illustrated text, readers should have a good understanding of how to design rig and build both square sailed as well as fore and aft rigged vessels. They will then be able to apply the basic principles and techniques and build any type of sailing ship they choose. Please note that there are many different techniques used by different builders in creating their ship models. Some use elaborate mast hinges while others contend with a maze of rigging lines which all run through and under the hull. This book teaches Capt. Dan's basic and the straight forward simple techniques that the authors uses on all of his ship in a bottle models. These basics can be enhanced and modified as model builders become more proficient. Capt. Dan has included a showcase of ship in bottle images from some of the best master model builders in the world. Often the best way to improve skills and technique is to examine the exquisite work and detail of these masters.

The art of building a ship in a bottle dates back to the early 1800's. Sailors for centuries have crafted items during there long journeys away from home. They worked with supplies that were readily available to them and are responsible for some of the finest scrimshaw and models ever created. Exactly when the first ship was built and inserted into a bottle is unknown. Bottles older than the mid 1800's were often not clear enough to showcase a miniature tall ship. By the late 1800's good quality hand blown glass bottles were abundant. It was during this time that this craft was perfected. Models back then were often created out of whale bone and exotic hardwood. Many of these early examples are now housed in museums around the world. Unfortunately, times have changed for mariners and model builders. Far fewer of our youth now venture out to sea for adventure or to seek their fortune. With the advent of the internet and video games even fewer are spending any time carving or crafting any type of models. This books goal is to help stir up some interest in this ancient maritime art form and preserve the building techniques for future generations.

The Secret
Many people think that the miniature ship model is actually built piece by piece while inside the bottle. Others think it's a complete illusion and that the bottle is cut in half and then glued back together around the miniature model. Actually, the detailed ship model is built outside the bottle but it's designed in a way that allows its masts and sails fold flat. The model is then slid in through the bottles neck and then the masts are carefully pulled upright with string and a few handcrafted tools. Of course it sounds a bit easier than it actually is. With the information and techniques provided in this text anyone with a little creativity will be able to craft and display a quality piece of maritime art.
