eBay item #180557263093. Simply unbelievable!!! Here's one of those overblown pieces of 'schlock', hyped to the extreme, obscenely over-priced, and far, far, far from authentic. The type of thing that periodically gives eBay a deservedly bad name. http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-1-3-SCALE-...093?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a0a0d30f5 The 'bark' kind of reminds me of cheap 'mac tac' veneer coating that one sticks on old cupboards. Ted B. believes it could be particle board plywood. Whatever, it's a long way from being an authentic native-made canoe of historic importance, as the seller claims.
