Marine Safety Equipment
Dunlop Beaufort were the supplier of the Safety Equipment on
the BC Super Ferries, and we worked very closely with them,
receiving information necessary, to build the safety
equipment, accurately, on the models, before the actual full
size ferries were finished.
we build the models, the ferries are very much at the design
stage only, owing to the fact that the Corporation needs the
models as early as they can get them, for promotional
purposes, prior to the commissioning.
you study the models, and compare them to the actual vessels
when completed, you will certainly find many differences.
That is because many of the design decisions during
outfitting are changed, after the models were built.
have the complete cooperation and support from companies
like Dunlop Beaufort, at the time of our construction was very
important. Drawings and Structural details
supplied to us, by Dunlop Beaufort, during the Super Ferry
model's construction, was invaluable.
Dunlop Beaufort commissioned us to build the 1:150 scale
waterline model above, showing the deployment of the escape
chutes, life rafts, and rescue zodiacs in action.
giant model in 1:12 scale (1" = 1' foot) which traveled all
over Canada, the U.S. and Great Britain, visiting Marine
Safety Shows, to promote Dunlop Beaufort safety equipment.
The model portrayed a section, approx.
8/10 feet long (model size), of a BC Super Ferry, showing the passenger
escape chute equipment deployed, and life rafts at water
level. Great model and really a lot of fun
