That is crazy to find that in a creek. I've found some cool old boards, but that is something else. Any ID on the wood type to not decay and remain that stable?

Wow that's quite something! I wonder how it ended up in a creek. Does he have any idea of its age? I'm getting a 1930s or 40s feel from it, but I'm definitely no expert.

Paint is holding up well, any idea how long it was in the creek for?
