Certain very distinctive sailing craft have been developed in the Chesapeake Bay area, and some, like the Baltimore clipper, have received a great deal of attention. Little note has been made, however, of other types of craft even though their utility and length of service have been considerably longer. This volume redresses that oversight.
Brewington traces the history of log canoes and bugeyes, and provides meticulous descriptions of the the hulls, rigging, fittings, and specialized equipment used on these unique Bay craft. The plates give lines and sail plans of more than a score of specific vessels.
