CAPTAIN HOOK, Pulling Boat


CAPTAIN HOOK, 12' pulling boat, Maine builders called boats like this simply 'round-bottom rowboats', these boats are built exactly like the Whitehalls of Boston and New York. In shape they are similar as well, with a good bit of dead rise amidships, but they have more rake in the stem, letting them lift a bit more in waves, and the forefoot is slightly cut away for better maneuverability.  CAPTAIN HOOK was found in Southport, Maine.  A typical Whitehall in construction, she has pre-bent frames fastened to long, stout floor timbers. A hog piece supports the back rabbet over the deadwood, as does a long stem knee up forward. From 87 Boat Designs by Ben Fuller. Plans drawn by Mystic Seaport staff in 1976 and updated 1999.
