Comments: This lovely rowing boat was taken from the lines of an old tender (ca. 1910) by Rice Brothers that is now in the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath. This boat’s construction was altered to that of a classic working Whitehall and building her this way yielded the first-hand experience and photos needed to produce an authoritative book on the subject (at Mystic Seaport Museum). The Whitehall has always been a favorite of amateur builders and many, many plans of this boat have been sold.
