Hampton boat

A small half-decked cat-ketch-rigged centerboard fishing boat from Casco Bay and the Hampton, New Hamshire area before that. Open or half-decked for rowing and sailing. Earliest ones were double ended; the late 19th-century boat had a transom stern. They were usually between 17 and 27 feet long. In the early 20th century, most were converted to engined boats and are one of the roots of modern lobster boats.
