Flyer’s boat rental shed.

This small, gambrel-roofed structure illustrates the peril of trying to guess the age of wood-frame structures, particularly those right on the water, exposed as they are to the terrifically earing effects of Cape Cod weather. Though the Flyer’s Boat Rental building looks like a venerable old waterfront shack, it was actually installed in 2002, Francis John Santos told me. Flyer’s fleet includes 24-foot Bentley pontoon boats that seat 12, 19-foot Grady-White Tournament speedboats with 115-horsepower engines, 19-foot Rhodes 19 sloops, 16-foot skiffs, 10-foot Sailfish, Ocean kayaks, and paddle boards.
