THE WATER WITCH
click any picture to biggify it
12 inches tip to tip at the handles.
This little cast iron and wood beauty would have been
clamped to the gunwale at the stern, near the net rollers
on an old double ended gill net fish boat, not unlike the
one pictured below. I believe the boat below is of early '40's
vintage and the WATER WITCH portable wheel may be older.
