Model Boats With A Purpose

Captain Morgan’s Galleon And Other Film Work

I have been asked by various film companies to help in the design of boat models to be used in the film industry. These include designing a short and stubby open canoe to be used with 'Malcolm the Mountie' in a Labatts lager ad', checking the hydrostatics and diving characteristics and altering the hull shape for a 1/5th model of a U Boat for the film Enigma, designing the hull for a half scale model of the yacht to be used in the film Gale Force 10, the whaling boats for the forthcoming film "In the Heart of the Sea" and checking the weight, ballasting and stability characteristics of the 1/5th scale scale model of the galleon used in the current Captain Morgan’s Rum adverts.

This photo shows the completed model beautifully built by The Magic camera Company at Shepperton Studios being readied for filming.
