Chebec-Polacre du 18e siècle.

Au 18e siècle, la France fit construire des chebecs à Toulon.
C’était pour combattre les corsaires et pirates Barbaresques venant d’Afrique du Nord qui attaquaient les nombreux navires au commerce se rendant à la célèbre foire de Beaucaire.

Les quatre premiers, construits en 1750-51 sous la direction de constructeurs Majorquins envoyés par le Roi d’Espagne, avaient des voiles latines aux trois mâts, des canons de 6 et 8 livres et des équipages de 150 à 220 hommes.
Les quatre suivants, construits en 1762 par les Toulonnais, avaient une polacre, une voile latine sur l’arbre de trinquet (misaine) et des voiles carrées aux autres mâts. La polacre est cette voile, ressemblant à un grand foc, placée sur la drisse allant du boute-hors avant (Berthelot) au haut du mât de trinquet. La surface totale de la voilure était de 502 m².
Ils portaient vingt canons de 8 livres et un équipage de 140 hommes.

Le même chebec sans voile polacre est nommé un « Mistic ».

Les plans originaux de ce modèle ont été dessinés par le Vice-Amiral PÂRIS, conservateur du Musée Naval du Louvre à Paris (de 1871 à 1893), d’après une maquette du chebec-polacre « Le Singe » qui avait été construit en 1762 et réformé en 1779.

:flaguk: :flagus: Xebec-Polacre 18th century.

In 18th century, France made build xebecs in Toulon.
It was to fight privateers and pirates coming from North Africa who attacked the numerous ships of the traders going to the famous fair of Beaucaire.

Four following ones, built in 1762, had a polacre, a Lateen sail on the foremast and squared veils on the other masts for a total surface of 502 m². The polacre is this sail, looking like an outer jib, placed on the halyard going from the jib-boom (berthelot) to the top of the foremast. They carried 20 canons of 8 pounds and a crew of 140 men.

A beautiful example of a ship, a few centuries back a fleet of Corsair Xebec's looted the Irish city of Baltimore and carried off part of the citizenry into slavery in Algeria

Ah yes, one of the many types of ships that the Royal Navy used back in the 1700's and 1800's.
I've seen one like this in a book called "Nelson's Navy".
Good job on this.

It is rather a Xebec, to hunt pirates in the Mediterranean! :D

Ah, makes sense. I only assumed it was for pirates because small sail boats, schooners, and Yachts were the preferred form of raiding vessel because they're small and fast.

That's a beautiful one :D. As many had said, it's great when the soul of the ship is given by sharing a bit of history and tidbits about it too. Now that you've made a smaller one, what about life size? ;). Great work in all!

Thank you for sharing this beautiful history! I have read about xebec-polacres in the Aubrey-Maturin books of Patrick O'Brian, but never quite figured out exactly what the rigging and sail plan would look like. Now I see why - not what I imagined at all!

It is amazing to watch your model building. But I especially enjoy the history you include, from your research of that particular boat or ship.

Lorn6 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
The historic researches concerning a model of boat are, when they succeed, the certainty to reproduce it such as it was, and it is also what gives him his soul.
A model without history is only a trinket without interest.
It is my opinion, but I indeed want to share it. :D
