E. L. Moore's Sail Loft

[E. L. Moore's Sail Loft; J. R. Fisher collection]

E. L. Moore's Sail Loft appeared in part two of his add a Harbor article that was published in the February 1968 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman.
Again, balsa for the walls has been set aside and Northeastern board-and-batten siding stock has been used. Although, Mr. Moore hints that those lobster trap markers strung along the walls could be made from either stripwood or balsa.
Mr. Moore has made this end quite visually interesting with the two different types of doors, coloured lobster trap markers, wall weathering and hoist bracket. It's like a small painting.
According to the article, this model was based on a prototype located in Rockport, Massachusetts. Prototype information was provided by his friend, Bart Crosby.
The loft's roof uses Mr. Moore' scribing technique to create the shingles.
