The Monterey Clipper fishing boats have long had a cult following among boat modelers on the West coast. My hope for this site is to introduce the boats to a wider audience, and to help modelers find the details which are so important in constructing their creations.
The boats make appealing subjects, especially for the R/C modeler. As with tugboats, one can make a large model of a small boat, allowing for all sorts of character and charm. The real boats were custom made, one at a time, “the old way”, so no two boats were exactly the same– which opens the door to your creativity, with no questions asked!
