The Mamoli Halifax wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real life ship. . Born as packet-boat, Halifax was purchased in17658 by the Royal Navy and transformed at Portsmouth into a typical colonial schooner of the time. These alterations included raising the cabin platform to obtain more storage space below, elevating the bulwarks with openings for the 6 guns and building a new railing with 6 culverins. The outer changes made to the hull as well as to masting and rigging altered deeply the original aspect. The sources concerning the life of this ship are extremely contradictory. It sailed prevailingly along the American coasts in a rather complex period of history of this country.
