This model is a simple (low polygon) model of a rock jetty for the Kinneret Boat, or for any boat. It is in *.OBJ file format.
A jetty is a rock or wooden structure that extends from a beach out to the deeper water or a lake or the ocean. Boats that cannot be driven up onto a beach or rocky shore are moored or docked at a jetty in deeper water.
The Sea Of Galilee has a somewhat rocky, stoney shore all around that would be hard on a wooden boat. There are (and were) few trees in the area. So, fishermen and other types of working sailors typically built small rock jetties out into the "Sea" (actually a large lake) with which to moor their boats. This is a simple rock jetty, large enough for the Kinneret Boat. Four large bronze rings on the jetty would be used to tie up the boat.
