Mail Bag! Zaca Model made from Main Boom of Flynn’s Original Zaca!

21 Oct

Robert writes again with photos of the model of the Zaca he constructed from wood of the Main Mast of the original Zaca. Of the model he says:

“All the masts and the support are in Oregon pine, but this wood is that of the principal boom of ZACA that I bought to the shipyard keeping the complete masts and cut it in planks of 3 centimeters thick, under report of Usher. This model is unique in the world because it is manufactured with the original hull and masts plans and the wood originating from the ZACA is an integral part of the ship. A historical model in various aspects.

I still have some boards of this wood of which I made 80 ZACA half-hull. It measures Length : 151 Cm – Width : 22 Cm – Height : 125 Cm.

The bollard is from the Zaca, and is for sale. You can inquire through this blog, by contacting Robert via our email address: zacapublishing at gmail dot com …

Robert, thanks so much for sharing your photos with us!

I want to sell this bollard of ZACA, there were two originally and when I knew the boat only one was in place on the starboard aft. I bought it at the Shipyard who was next to Bankruptcy. It is in the state it was on board, there is a beautiful trace of cables on one arm and the central sphere. (See pict of detail)I also have the four bolts for fixing to the bridge, in bronze.

This piece is unique and for a true enthusiast of Errol Flynn and ZACA. I ask for it 60.000 Euros. Interested collector can contact me. Looking forward to your reply, I present to you my best regards.

Robert.

Writer Louis Kraft’s New Book Coming Along …

11 Aug

If you love Errol Flynn, you should know that writer Louis Kraft is planning new books on Flynn … his plate is full but he has a new book coming down the pipeline first and this is a peak at its cover artwork …

Louis says:

More’s a comin’ … and this has been a comin’ for a long-long time. Sand Creek and the Tragic End of a Lifeway will be published in spring 2020 (University of Oklahoma Press). The book cover design has been completed, and the art is the only image I considered for the dust jacket. In 1999 I met Cheyenne chief Gordon Yellowman, when we both spoke at a major event at the Fort Larned NHS, Kansas. During the conference Gordon and Cheyenne chief Lawrence Hart blessed the Cheyenne-Dog Man-Lakota village, which is some 30 miles to the west of the fort (it is a major historic site that has been protected due to a lot of people’s efforts over the years). During the day of the talks, Gordon was selling prints of his painting, “Sand Creek.” I bought one, framed it, and it has been displayed at Tujunga House ever since. He was thrilled when I called him to ask if I could use his art on the cover. When he said, “yes,” I was more thrilled. … Sometime in September I’ll post a blog that details the Sand Creek book’s progress in detail.
