    SignificanceAs a replica this boat conflicts with the Museum's current Collection Policy which does not accept replicas. It was understood to be based on an original boat of the same name from the 1840s but the provenance does not indicate what records were available to work from, and it is unclear how accurate the design and construction if or the period it is said to represent. Max Creese was a well known builder from the 1950s to the 1980s, and a number of his craft are still extant.
