    Water in the boat is the ruin of the boat, but water under the boat is its support

I was rather intrigued by this article in Classic Boat magazine (ARTICLE) about a lateener rigged boat called Maria.

Apparently, it was the last Norfolk Broads Lateener and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it ultimately found it's way to the Broad's Museum.

Having said that, I couldn't help but wonder if this is the Falcon boat now used as a steamer? But I think that Falcon is a carvel build.
