The three rubbing strakes at extreme right are hand-formed and radiused from aluminium, and pinned to the timber strakes below with brass pins.

The mast-box can be seen below the mast, and allows the mast to be lowered onto the crutch. This process can be carried out on the model, in the same way as on the original vessel.
