Vintage Wooden Rowboat or Skiff in white with green

Skiff- “In American usage, the term is used to apply to small sea-going fishing boats. It is referred to historically in literature in Moby-Dick by Herman Melville and The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. The skiff could be powered by sails as well as oars.

One usage of skiff is to refer to a typically small flat-bottomed open boat with a pointed bow and a flat stern originally developed as an inexpensive and easy to build boat for use by inshore fishermen. Originally designed to be powered by rowing, their form has evolved so that they are efficiently powered by outboard motors. The design is still in common use today for both work and pleasure craft. They can be made of wood or other materials.”-text: Wikipedia

these were decor pieces in a high-end high-street retail shop, where they helped create a rugged manly atmosphere; it is likely that they didn’t use marine paint so there might be a little work involved in getting it back in the water
