The Jesus Boat

In 1999 We visited Caperenaum by the sea of Galilee and this site where archaeologist were preserving a first century fishing boat that was found during a time when lake levels were low.
Did Jesus sail in this boat?  The time frame for this boat makes it possible that he could have sailed in it. It is also likely that this boat was one of thousands that were around at the time and he did not sail in it. The model below is what the boat would have looked like new.
My three friends from the Ashkelon dig traveled with me to the Sea of Galilee  in a rental car.

Pictured here from left to right are Howard Scott, Carol Jahn and Eudora Bernsen. We all had a great time exploring northern Israel together.
