    I made this model in fuzhou.

    Yes.“shaohsing ch'uan” = "shaoxing chuan"

    Because,in the early 20th century, foreign wrote before is to use "shaohsing ch 'uan".

    The*sail is made of traditional Chinese cotton fabric . This cloth was originally white , and then repeated the boiling in the water of "薯榔" and drying , to get the color.
    "薯榔"(薯莨)Scientific name : Dioscorea matsudae

    According to our understanding , the "Amoy" have been parked in Echo Bay (New Rochelle, N.Y.) from 1950s, and then was sold by captain Nilson . Record said : "The Amoy was lost in a storm near Cape Hatteras in 1961 。" But not detailed, just one sentence only .
    I can not open the link you provided .
