It's built like... a canoe. but larger. The lady that offered it to me saved it from Independence Seaport Museum in Phila PA. where is was headed for a dumpster after sitting in warehouses for many many years. I don't think it's anything special nor do I look at old boats as valuable. I do plan to restore and use this boat. It's clinker lapstrake copper fasteners throughout. It was a duckboat. no names,numbers, or tags anywhere on the hull.
