A historic replica of a long-lost colonial boat is getting a touch-up at a local museum in the US.

 

This one of a kind boat called the Periauger, has made a temporary return to the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center in Beaufort, where it was originally built, witn.com reported.

It was brought back to be refurbished.

The museum’s maritime coordinator, David Bennett, said the original boat was a popular coastal transport in North Carolina’s waters in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The boat has been featured in both historic documentaries and on the big screen, in the 2019 movie, “Harriet”.
