DESCRIPTION SITE :
I painted the cloud formation enclosing the Mayflower, to give a dramatic theatrical effect of the vast amount of canvas typically carried by yachts of this time.
The all-metal Galatea had a steel frame, a lead-filled steel keel, and a riveted steel-planked hull and launched in May 1885.
Galatea lost both races in the September 1886 America's Cup in New York to the American defender Mayflower.
Mayflower was built entirely of wood: oak and hard pine.NOTES AMERICA-SCOOP :
