Occre Endurance 12008

In the race to conquer the South Pole, three names loomed large: Ernest Shackleton, Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen.

The Endurance was launched on 17 December 1912 under the name “Polaris”. Originally rigged as a frigate, she was converted into a three-masted barquentine and in 1914 joined the famous Trans-Antarctic Imperial Expedition to cross Antarctica under Sir Ernest Shackleton’s command.

After the Expedition was shipwrecked on 19 August 1915, the Endurance was trapped in the ice of the Weddell Sea. For 522 days the explorers braved winds up to 300 km/h and temperatures of 40 degrees below zero.

Shackleton and a few hand-picked men took a small boat, the James Caird, and made one of the most memorable and heroic journeys in sailing history. Together with all their crew, they accomplished the most important feat of all...surviving.

The expedition is remembered as an epic story of endurance, heroism and survival.

Happy Hunter

Krick has now re-released the Happy Hunter under it's Ro-Marin Range
The Happy Hunter is a scale reproduction of a Dutch ocean-going salvage tug to a scale of 1 : 50.

The boat is built to be powered by a direct-drive, i.e. non-geared system, in the form of two high-torque 700 electric motors. Fixed Kort nozzles increase thrust, and the boat is capable of carrying out extremely arduous towing tasks and complex manoeuvres in conjunction with the bow thruster, which is an optional accessory. The capacious plastic hull allows the modeller to install numerous auxiliary working systems, and experienced builders will enjoy fitting out the Happy Hunter with a working lighting system, radar, anchor winch, sound system and towing mechanism. It is even possible to install a fully working crane; the crane itself is included in the kit.

Aeronaut Pilot Boat 1:25

Boats of this general type are widely encountered along the Baltic and North Sea coasts. These vessels are very agile and fast, typically capable of 25 - 30 kn. Their task is to provide reliable, all-weather transport for pilots to the large ocean-going ships. The space aft of the command stand can accommodate several pilots, so that a single excursion can take all of them out to their “workplaces”. Our model very effectively incorporates the typical characteristics and handling of these boats.

The model is based on a modern planing hull, and is therefore very fast and agile. The hard-chine hull is of plastic construction. All the ABS parts are supplied laser-cut, and can be slotted together and glued immediately. The hull is assembled on a Depron jig. The power system consists of two electric motors which can either be controlled individually (2 x Multi 25 speed controller) or in common by a single Multi 40 controller. Two rudder systems are used for directional control.
