Steel manufacturing was quite an industry in the early 1900's, and manufacturers such as Mullins and F.H. Darrow took advantage of the growing market for watercraft and began to build marketable boats. F.H. Darrow Steel Boat Manufacturing Co. built this portable rowboat around 1915 when trailers were uncommon and the automobile was quickly gaining in popularity. They developed an ingenious design where a 16' rowboat could be broken down into 3 independent segments, nested one inside the other, and mounted on the running board of a car! Not only is the boat easily portable; each section can float independently. This design is very unique and represents an era when the concept of travel by road took off! She has been nicely restored and is complete with oars. Full documentation available.
