Sampan boats constructed for Hammerhead show

Sampan, most common type of small boat in Chinese waters, constructed in a variety of designs. Some have sharp bows, and nearly all have large sterns, with the after portion of the gunwale and deck nearly always raised. Sampans are usually rigged for sailing, sometimes with two masts; otherwise they are rowed with large sweep-type oars. They are usually open or partly decked, with a shelter or cabin aft. In Japan, Hawaii, and Taiwan, a powered boat has been developed out of the traditional Japanese sampan, with a flat-bottomed midsection.

Thought i might just contruct 4 Sampans, created from a black foam board with coffee stirrers, bamboo skewers and basic wire for rope effect, all 28mm scale, these will be added to the game at the Hammerhead show.
