Comments: Just who built the original design and when are not known for sure, although it is reputed to have been built about 1880 at Northport, Maine, by a member of a Northport boatbuilding family by the name of Drinkwater. It shows a strong resemblance to boats used for recreational rowing in the 1880's on the Charles River in Boston. The skiff is not heavy for its size and is a very speedy rower, although a bit tender.
