"It was three and half feet deep, eight feet wide and twenty-six feet long, exactly."  The boat was designed to hold a maximum of thirty two people and was symmetrically shaped with rounded ends.  There were side benches inside that ran the length of the whole boat on both sides, which merged at the ends to form triangular shaped benches.
