A Visit to BlueJacket Shipcrafters

A Visit to BlueJacket Shipcrafters

While I was away and the bosun was putting on some crazy sales, I had the opportunity to visit our friends at BlueJacket Shipcrafters in Maine. Nic was kind enough to give me the grand tour and it was great to see the place. I thought I'd share some photos from the visit.

 

The main floor with completed models of their kits.

This is all the molds BlueJacket uses for their various fittings. Some of these date back to the 1950s!

This is where they make the fittings. The round discs are the silicon molds.

These are the molds opened up.

The kit assembly room.

This is Al Ross who has designed a lot of the kits for BlueJacket. Currently finalizing the prototype for the Oregon.

The USS Constitution

The USS Kearsarge

The Lightship Nantucket

Cross section of the Charles W. Morgan

The Portland

The Bowdoin (I bought this kit while there)

A great visit all around! Thanks to Nic and his team for the hospitality! If you find yourself in Maine, try to stop buy and see them.
