Most Confederate blockade runners were financed, engineered and built in Great Britain. They ran the Union blockade from Bermuda, The Bahamas and Havana carrying munitions and consumer goods to Confederate ports and brought back bales of cotton.

They rode low in the water and were much faster than the Union blockaders. Lots of them go through but luck was not with Hope, 1864.

Vince McCullough has drawn detailed plans from original sources and Gib McArdle has explained in words and photos, the building of the model of Hope.
