Model discussion:
"At about this time (fall of 1864), I had a desire to have a boat, and I designed and made a model for a 16 ft. cat boat. This was not built then, but the following year for a Mr. Holden and was named HENRIETTA. [It was owned] later by Charles F. Chase [and] named POPPASQUASH." (P. 103; Source: Herreshoff, N. G.
