Unknown vessel; Boat

Scale: Unknown. A full hull model of a double-ended open boat made entirely in wood with metal fittings and varnished. The model depicts a vessel that is designed to separate transversely amidships, thus effectively becoming two boats. The two sections are screwed together by two wing nuts, with the forward-end being slightly the longer of the two. The hull is carvel-built with wide planks and widely spaced frames internally. Fittings include two thwarts in aft-end, a semi-circular stern seat and two ring bolts at the bow and aft ends.
