Description Adirondack Guideboat. Built by an unknown builder
L: 16' 4"B: 39"Wt: 65 lbs
The significant amount of rocker in the bottom of this boat suggests that it was built for use on winding waterways where the rower needed to turn frequently, rather than on a large lake where he'd be rowing mostly in a straight line. Its interesting repairs include a patch that is double the width of the planks, probably to fix a puncture.
