    Appears to be a near conventionally shaped planing runabout type. It would perform well with moderate sized engine of 10 to 15 HP or so.

    It appears to be well done with planked construction which is not a common way to do it these days. The builder must be have been a skilled craftsman in order to fit all those planks together so neatly. It is a short boat with a rather flat bottom and it is likely to pound pretty hard if driven too fast in choppy water. It will probably make a thoroughly ample little boat for the conservative user.
