    Has anyone have any information about or seen an open motor boat possibly based on traditional fishing or canal boat used in Netherlands, about 8-9mt loa, 2.8-3.0mt beam, deep draft round bilge and canoe stern with deep gunwales. Looks like a 1900's small ships gig or lifeboat. Probably had a de-mountable rudder with standing coxswain tiller.
    I've had a request to build one but all I have seen is a single old photo, would like to get some details if possible to confirm the boat.
