Found on an island near St Petersburg a 40 foot dugout canoe helps tell the story of the Manasota people

A ten year old discovery is shedding new light on the Manasota people and their way of life in northern Florida. The boat was possibly used for travel or fishing or even trade.

"To prevent the canoe from fracturing, workers cut it into sections and then brought them to shore by boat."

A 40 foot long canoe? That in itself is pretty amazing, let alone the fact that it's 1,000 years old. I almost cringed when they had to cut it up though.
