Yeah. That's a project.
Dug out of a sand bar in Coos Bay Oregon around 1980. It's 14 feet long, had two rowing stations and a rudder, and at one time had a motor of some kind in it, as there's a hole in the keel for a propellor shaft.
I aquired it around 1985 or so, as a partially finished project. Most of the tricky stuff had been completed (like building that mahogany transom). I still have to build a stem for it, and complete the interior fittings.
I found out recently that it's what was known as a "whitehall skiff", built around 1920 by a well-known boat builder in Coos Bay.
Someday, I hope to be able to row it around in Coos Bay.

Good luck with your Enfield project, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.
