This is the website of Arthur D. Larason. On this site you will find pictures of my handcrafted nautical creations. I build from scratch of my own design miniature yachts suitable for radio control applications or just for display. My boats are unique, built just like a real wooden boats and they are collectables built to last for several generations. I have many years of experiance working in yacht repair and construction in south Florida. I also have a lifetime of experiance building all kinds of wood and plastic models.
I also build from scratch and with no plans or instructions vikingwarships modeled after the 1000 year old viking ships on display in Norway. My vikingships are like my mini yachts, unique museum quality replicas of the real thing. They are labor intensive and require skills obtainable only by years of experiance and practice.
You will also find on this site stories of my time in the U.S. Marine Corp and stories of my experiance as a commercial helicopter pilot.
Many of my creations will be available for sale. They will not be cheap but will be priced about half of their worth. Building them is a labor of love and not just to make money. So if you have time check out my site and enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
This site is new as of march 2013 and will gradually grow with more information. Click on the picture below for a description, Scroll down for website directory

The sound track in my vikingship videos are from MGMs 1958 "Vikings" with Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis and edited by Brookings Or. own Elmo Williams. In my opinion that was the best movie on the vikings to this day.
