Antique sculling shell on eBay

This lovely sculling shell is on eBay, bidding currently over £100 and the auction still has five days to go.
The boat is 21ft long, clinker built (I think) and apparently still rowable. Its age is unknown, though I would say she looks pre-war or even older. It is exactly the sort of boat Mr Toad would have had, until he abandoned rowing for the gypsy caravan.
