Letters - Issue 112
Do you know anything about this model of the HMS Endeavour?More to the Story? I am in possession of a small wooden model of HMS Endeavour built by James Izzolo. He obtained the design from England and spent eight years crafting it while teaching in the bush in Alaska. Each plank on the hull is hand pegged. Each block is hand carved. Ten years ago, someone came into the office, recognized the model, and noted that it had been on the cover of many boat magazines. Jim displayed it in our office and then one day sold it to us so that he could obtain some funds to travel the world. My letter to his last address was returned. Searches on the Internet have been futile. Who might know more about the model? There must be someone who knows more of the story. Please contact me, and I will compile the information and pass it along.

Conway, New HampshireTed ought to know something about art. He is a Contributing Illustrator for MBH&H and the regular illustrator of Eva Murray’s “Letter from Matinicus.“—Eds.
Speaking of Eva... Eva Murray’s article in the Boat Show Issue, MBH&H #111, on recyclable and garbage transfer from the island to the mainland was very interesting and very well written. However, I guess we have a different model of refrigerators in Florida, as most of those washed out from homes in the surge from Hurricane Dennis in the Shell Point area of Florida ended up at the bottom of the canals and had to be fished out as they were found. It would have been much easier if they had been floating.
