Indeed. The guy who built her loved the look of lapstrake boats so he decided to build one. The sailing rig was an afterthought and he didnt spend much time or effort on it. I've completely re-rigged it to more of a standard gaff-rig. The axe handle is one I had laying around from a previous project. It turned out to be the perfect size.

I thought the same thing when I first got it but now I realize I don't care much for fancy decorations. It's a boat so I will use it as such.
