Chinese Lake Pleasure Boat

Four weeks ago I received a kit from China of a lake boat with a wooden structure and a plastic hull. It was motorized, but I did not add any of that. It was a three-day build for fun, and I added details to make it better. I bought the kit on AliExpress for about $20.
Such vessels would have been used by the royals and mandarins and ruling class on the lakes near Beijing. It is also noted that the first congress of the Chinese Communist Party was held on a similar lake boat.
