On a recent trip to Nantucket, I happened upon this Marblehead of the Vintage Variety sitting in an window of a downtown shop.


Too bad the store had no clue what it was.. drilled a hole in the bow, added a bowsprit, added some horrible and not-accurate sails. Oh well. Still a good "wall hanger"

The stern still had the remains of what was once a vane-gear boat. Of course the store employee had no idea what Vane Gear even meant, so no need to go down that conversational road.

I'm not sure exactly what it is... although that really doesn't matter.
But It looked to me like a Cheerio I, or possibly a very early Arrow.
