    As you can see in the pics posted by "oporca" the Warlock/Orca originally had no pulpit and is overall quite different than the boat in your photo. The boat in your pic is more along the lines of this vessel,which was a common design for the time period.

    Heres another photo of the Orca/Warlock before they transformed it.You can see the windows,etc,etc...was different than your grandfathers boat.Still,your grandfathers boat was nice and would have made a good Jaws boat.

    I heard about the final resting place of the Orca, from the movie. It was last seen on Cape Cod after it was bought from EBay
