Original text on model:
"[Unreadable pencil script]" (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)
"There is no writing on the back of the model. There is a scribed waterline. It has similarities (wood, look, patina) of models that are identified to JBH. The model has a 5/16 inch wood piece screwed to the deck that adds to vessel depth and length. From the appearance of the wood it is a later addition to the original model.
