Description: As sailing vessels gave way to powered vessels and the beam (width) of Chesapeake Deadrise workboats increased, elliptical sterns evolved into round sterns, such as the one on this model. Later designs evolved further, into box sterns. With round stern wooden boats, the stern was either “chunked” (created from layers of wood blocks) or “staved” (created from vertical planks of wood). The round stern workboat was both functional and attractive and hundreds of them were built in this style. Our model also includes a “canvas” soft top, stretched across beams and secured with lines, for use when watermen needed shade from the scorching sun.
Features: Wooden construction, fully assembled, ready to display. Engine box, dual control stations (including tiller steering in stern), culling table with legs, antenna, lights, horn, hand rails, soft top with tie-downs, cabin portholes, windows, life ring, fire extinguisher, round stern, exhaust pipe, crab net and boat hook. Boat is painted white, with gray cockpit floor, copper/red bottom paint and wooden stand, painted black. DISPLAY CASES DO NOT COME WITH BOAT MODELS. ALL DISPLAY CASES ARE SOLD SEPARATELY.
