This is a Chesapeake Bay charter fishing boat. They charge "by the head" hence the name. The scale is 1:16 - the model is about 32" long overall. It is not a model of a specific boat, but I was inspired by a real boat named Miss Violet moored at Kent Island, MD. There are progress pics from the build on my website - modelboatyard.com

Thanks! The buckets were turned from ordinary 1/2" PVC plumbing pipe. Not exactly fun stuff to turn, but cheap and readily available.

The buckets, the mop, the toilet paper, the graffiti!!  It transports you to being on the actual boat!  I love it!  So amazing.  Thanks for sharing it.   BTW - do have Suzie's number?  Its kind of smudged.  😉
