    Indiana Jones wooden boat

    Can anyone tell me the year/brand/model/manufacturer of the wooden boat used by Indiana Jones in Venice that was chewed up by the big propeller?

    Seen it many times and wondered that myself. My bet is the one going under the prop was probably and empty shell. Still kinda a shame.
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    Riva???
    Not sure if they were around during that period.

    Movie was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    Here is one picture of the boats from The Last Crusade.

    This was taken from one of the Goof-Up pages from the movie, showing a "wire" holding the bow in place. Not sure if you can see it in this picture since it was resized.

    Another showing the boat getting chopped up by the ships propeller.

    In Venice as Indy's boat is being dragged into the big ship's screw the wooden hull breaks away - revealing that there is no motor in it, in fact there is nothing, it's just empty! When Indy and Elsa are coming to the end of the boat scene, one of the boats hits the propellers of the big ship and is "chewed up" to about mid-boat, in the next scene the hatch is not broken and miraculously back in place.
