Three-Masted Schooners Models - By Hector Belliveau

 

In the 1960s my father, Hector Belliveau, researched the three-masted schooners he remembered seeing growing up in Belliveau Cove. He built these two outstanding models.  Every detail was researched and constructed as accurate as possible; they can even sail.  Each model has a complete hull frame system

and is planked like the real ships were. (All photos by Hector Belliveau)

On the very beach the real Belliveau ships were built and launched
