Boston Whitehall Tender Model Boat
Some hold that the Whitehall row boat design was introduced from England,
however the famed nautical historian Howard I. Chappelle cites the opinion of
the late W. P. Stephens that in New York City there is a Whitehall Street and
this was where the Whitehall was first built. Chappelle, Stephens and others
agree that the design came into existence some time in the 1820ís in New
York City, having first been built by navy yard apprentices who had derived
their model boat to some extent from the old naval gig.
