OriginEdit

A boater (also straw boater, basher, skimmer, cady, katie, somer, sennit hat, or in Japan, can-can hat) is a kind of men's formal summer hat.

It is normally made of stiff sennit straw and has a stiff flat crown and brim, typically with a solid or striped grosgrain ribbon around the crown. Boaters were popular as casual summer headgear in the late 19th century and early 20th century, especially for boating or sailing, hence the name. They were supposedly worn by FBI agents as a sort of unofficial uniform in the pre-war years.

TodayEdit

The hat was collected when reports of rare items were being stolen from museums in South America, but there were no findings of who was doing it, as while there were large crowds in the area during the time of thieft, no one was found to conatin the items. Artie was sent down to deal with the problem, but was having no luck until the downside of the artifact kicked in and allowed him to subdue the thief quickly. Now the hat is in the Warehouse.
