This kayak is one of two copies, built by Harvey Golden, of an East Greenland Kayak from 1842 which is now in the Danish National Museum. The replica shown below is owned by Turner Wilson.
Pictures of a second replica are here, on Harvey's website.
The replicas are also discussed in "Kayaks of Greenland", pages 392-396, with a plate on page 389.
