The Snake kit has been designed with the novice / intermediate builder
in mind and is ideal as a first or second model for the introduction to
plank on frame building. The Snake class were ship rigged sloops. This
class was very business like with a flush deck and nine cannons or carronades
each side, they were very fast and seaworthy. As originally built Snake
had a full ordinance of 32 pounder carronades. Carronades replaced the
carriage guns because at close quarters the short range carronades proved
devastating to their opponents. Class dimensions were: length 100’; breadth
30’6”; displacement 382 tons with a crew of 121.
