This is a very rare classic. Peterborough built very few boats using this construction technique. The craftsmanship is exquisite. -White cedar planking -oak half round ribs -transom (12" by 25") & skeg -15 inch centre depth -22 inch bow depth -Original basswood floor boards. I bought this boat about 10 years ago. The previous owner was in the midst of restoring it, when a fire swept through his shop. The hull was safe, but some of the parts were destroyed. There was no hardware with the boat. I put a lot of time, effort, and expense into making the missing parts (white oak), procuring hardware, and putting the boat back together. While I have thoroughly enjoyed rowing it in Swell Bay of Rainy Lake, it is now time to let it go for a new owner to appreciate. In the past year, the keel and skeg were removed and re-bedded. The exterior has been freshened with 6 coats of Epifanes clear gloss varnish. A new and proper (concave back) half oval brass stemband and bow eye have been installed. The rear seat backrest was made from Peterborough Speedster backrests. There are a few bangs, bruises, dark spots, and the seats have a few scratches from my dogs. While not pristine, this is still a valuable boat. Price includes one pair of original Peterborough spoon blade oars with new leathers and oarlocks.
