This museum-quality Antique Guideboat was built in the 1880’s by William Martin, Saranac Lake, Franklin County, New York; a well known builder of these fine small watercraft. It is an excellent survivor in original condition. William Martin's boats were commonly referred to as ‘Eggshells’, due to his fine craftsmanship resulting in a 16’ boat weighing in at approximately 60 lbs which allowed a single Adirondack Guide to carry the boat over the many ‘carries’ connecting lakes and streams throughout the Adirondacks. It has been in the same family since the mid – 1960s always kept in an enclosed ‘dry’ Adirondack boathouse when not in use. It is reluctantly offered for sale and includes a set of 8’ oars and all the expected seating as well as a carrying yoke.
