Fauntleroy resident Maryanne Tagney Jones describes the charming Adirondack guideboat that she and her husband, David Jones are contributing to the Champagne Gala Lunch of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013.

The Adirondack guideboat is an historic design that was first used in the mid-1800s to ferry people across the lakes in northern New York state. With its points at both ends and the user sitting low in the boat to wield its oars, the Adirondack guideboat is designed for a speedier rowing experience. Rowers get into the boat by holding both sides and sliding into the seat instead of stepping and standing. While some modern Adirondack guideboats are made of synthetic materials, this boat is all the more special because it is constructed with wood.

Special thanks to Craig Lee of Maryland for help with the background of this beautiful boat. (Video edit by Southwest Seattle Historical Society video volunteer Trish Cosgrove.)
