This narrow, rather crude dugout reportedly "sailed the lake daily" with the aid of outriggers, a statement borne out by P 8074 and P8072. There is a set of four screw holes in the bottom which may have held a mast step, and holes in the side, possibly for the outrigger.. Ernest Berry once owned Camp Fairview on Osprey Island in Raquette Lake. The surname of his fellow builder is not recorded.
