I thought so too Lurk but it's too high to fit under all those little bridges. It does resemble those canal boats though. pete

Interesting but my Southern Belle has a lot more curves and far better lines then that.

Looks like an ELCO Commuter Yacht. They built more than PT Boats!

This looks some what similar to but would be longer than the Deans Marine Snow Goose or the Bluebird of Chelsea. Also both carry the raised deck further back.

Neither English Narrow boats or any of the Bluebird of Chelseas rebuilds have used turned table legs as hand rail supports.

Shows all the design finesse of the Edsal.

I suppose that this would be considered "design finesse"? Even the Edsel looked better and you didn't have to be a midget to get in and out of it. Pete

As for the mystery boat I think it's one of a kind scratch build by a Dutchman. Pete
