We are offering this Rare Hard to Find WWI Era Military Boat used to make a pontoon bridge. The boat is metal and comes in three sections. The sections each have a large dovetail to slide the together. This pontoon boat was used to make a foot bridge for soldiers and used when bridges were destroyed or not available. The boat is in very restorable condition. The front section and the middle section are in very good strong condition with only several very small holes otherwise strong and looks great. The rear section has some damage to the edges from use but it is also strong and very restorable. Please look at all the pics and contact me with any other questions. The boat sections measure: Front 39 inches long, Middle is 69 Inches long by 33 inches wide and 12 1/2 inches high at the location where the bridge planks were laid across the boat.
