Marsh boat ID help
Need help identifying a duck boat my father built around 1953. I believe it was a kit and don't think he would have made any significant modifications to the plans. He built the boat in Boston but most of his hunting was done in Ohio and Michigan so would have been influenced by those local designs. He was a packrat and saved everything except any documentation on this boat. He passed away a few years ago and I had the opportunity to ship the boat to me in AZ with some other items. It is marine ply on frame and the underside was glassed during construction. Many years later he attempted to fiberglass the decking. When I got the boat I was afraid the plywood had de-laminated but luckily it was just the glass cloth that separated from the wood (apparently he glassed over paint). In any event, I stripped the boat done to bare wood on top and interior and left the cloth in place on the hull. I then re-glassed the the entire boat with new cloth on the decking and epoxy resin. I made one small mod on the transom by sandwiching in an additional piece of 3/4 plywood for strength. The boat is now as good as new. The boat is 11'8" long by 40" wide, weight around 120-130 pounds (by guesstimate). I have either a 15hp Johnson or 8hp Evinrude for power to supplement the oars and push pole! Any help on ID would be greatly appreciated.
