This is a high resolution model of the Kinneret Boat reconstructed from the archeological remains of the ancient fishing boat found on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee in Israel in 1986. This is the "Full Sail" version of the boat, and it is in *.obj file format.
The model includes the hull, sail and rigging as a single piece, and has separate objects for the rudders, oars, fishing baskets and bow rings. A simple human reference figure is included to help scale any characters developed for the boat, and there are reference images to show scale and placement of the included objects.
The document in the zip file explains something of the origins of the boat, how it would be rowed and sailed, and describes development of this particular model. Clark Cook developed the first 3D model and provided the template for this one, updated to reflect more recent knowledge.
