Here's a new model just added to my fleet of hunting and fishing boats. This is the 3rd one I've completed. A nice example of a "CHESAPEAKE BAY RAILBIRD SKIFF". Railbird hunting is done along the edges of the marsh, shallow water mud flats and dense vegetation where they are commonly found searching for food. Poling these stealthy crafts in and out the marsh and sloughs in attempt to flush out the birds is a common technique.
This versatile water craft is also used for duck hunting. Like all of my work this is not a kit. My models are 100% hand made built one piece at a time taking many hours to complete. It's been antiqued and slightly distressed to simulate many years of use.A very unique conversation piece and would display well with any decoy collection, den or hunting memorabilia. I DO NOT USE STOCK PHOTOS, THIS IS THE BOAT YOU WILL RECIEVE. The boat measures 24 X 5- 1/2 and comes complete with 6 hand carved / hand painted Canvasback decoys, push pole, oars & oar locks, anchor and stand. Thanks for looking and view my other auctions for more quality pieces.
