This was something I had never seen before. It came up for sale in a Facebook group.

A classic 13-footer is a very useful boat, but I don't think I would want to camp on it. Someone certainly put a lot of thought, design, and effort into that accessory, but it is just a curiosity for me. Maybe were I 50-years younger it would have more appeal. But even today I have my doubts about 17-year-olds wanting to sleep on 13-foot skiffs.
