This one might look better with a picket fence.
Solid looking boat though.

Solid as a brick........... boathouse.

Completely agree. I can see netting if you have little ones or pets aboard but that's the ONLY excuse IMHO. A little bit of cross netting on the foredeck to keep sails on board a racer with luff tracks is also understandable, although I'd rather risk having a sail go overboard on my own boat. The worst I've EVER seen is that perforated fluorescent orange plastic "snow fence" material used as lifeline netting - bleeecchh.

To my eye, those boats with rigid tube railings all round the deck - full boat pulpits - might as well be a picket fence.

Oddly enough though, I don't care for the look of boats without pulpits & lifelines either - they have an unfinished look to them.

I was wondering if it was someone having fun with an old ferro boat.

Finally got out to the boat on this beautiful Presidents' Day and was able to snap a few pics of the mystery boat. I tried to capture three rather distinctive features: 1) the flower on the cove line 2) the tumbledown beam and 3) the "center" cockpit, although is pretty far aft. Now can anyone recognize what make of boat this is?

Thanks Bob. It would be an interesting story to find how the hell it made its way to a small lake in central Arkansas!
