Old aluminum kayak? Never seen that before.

As to the model sea warfare, some of those guys take their hobby pretty seriously. Used to be battles on a lake in SF; don't know if they still do that. The boat in the OP looks like it has Maine registration numbers. Wonder what it's powered by?

You are perfectly correct that the Cockleshell Canoes were the Mk1.
