Boatbuilders in search of portability came up with some curious results. The sections of this boat are held together with bolts and can be nested one inside the other. The resulting 40" X 42" X 18" package was probably intended to be transported by car from home to fishing grounds. It is very heavy for its size. It was found under water in Raquette Lake.
