LEUDO VİNAİNO (1800-1900)
HISTORY OF LEUDO
The model of Leudo and its all
accessories are made and built by model-maker Nihat Karalar.
Linden, walnut, hornbeam and ramin (tropical) trees have been
used on this model. It was painted with air-brush and was ended
with spray mat varnish.
forefathers of the LEUDO are Medieval Lateen sails with two
masts inclined towards the prow. In the years that followed, the
prow-masts lose in Lateen sails and the bowsprits with jibs
appear instead of their. And Leudo comes into the world.
Practically it is easy to use bowsprits with jibs.The hull of
Leudo has a characteristic egg shape.This building is the
equipoise for Leudo. It is easier making manoeuvering by a
bowsprit with jibs than a prow-mast . The spar is longer than
the hull of Leudo. Therefore, the setting of a type of triangle
canvas is very hard but it is an advantage for getting winds.
Leudo does not regret at very hard weather conditions.Heavy
rain water drain nonstop through escape holes .The hardy hatches
of store is covered storage goods for demages of rain. Leudo is
an İtalian daring youth in Mediterranean Sea.
