I've seen that photo before and really like that boat.

Q. does that high coaming keep the gators from crawling into the cockpit with you?

I was wondering about the reason for the high coaming too.

The high coaming is probably to keep game, lumber, liquor...whatever they were transporting... stacked and in the boat.
