Alex Bellinger Posted April 21, 2015 Report Share Posted April 21, 2015 Over the years people often ask if this is a dying art and if there are fewer of us out there doing it. People writing into Bottle Shipwright often said they thought they were the only one left! Experience has certainly shown this is not the case. Here I want to introduce two ship in bottlers I have known and worked with for years. First is Gerry Ross, who lives on Cape Cod and regular teaches ship in bottling classes at the Woods Hole Museum. He and I see each other only during the Woods Hole Boat Show when we set up a table together and regale visitors with tales of glory and adventure as ship in bottlers. One of the things great about working with Gerry is he never grows tired of answering, "How do you get them in there." Here he is demonstrating to a family at the Woods Hole Show last weekend. For the past two shows we have been joined by Tony Colton, a ship in bottler from Quincy, Mass. Tony and I have known each other for years through the ship model club at the USS Constitution Museum. Tony is also active with the Fletcher Class destroyer in the Boston Navy Yard, Cassin Young. jimsib, IgorSky, Gwyl Blaser and 2 others 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
