There have been several candidates for the title of 'ur-skiff' submitted to this column over the years:  we like this one from Sue Jenkins, spotted on a pub wall in Norway.  It's just possible that they are advertising the bottle of beer being flourished by the coxswain, who appears to have forgotten his rudder.  Interesting too that they are carrying a rig.
