Chesapeake Deadrise Build

East River – Mobjack Bay
In St. Michaels Chesapeake Bay Museum

The watermen on the Bay have some of the most elegant vessels which, in many cases, are build by themselves though now perhaps not so much. The Mariner’s Museum in Newport News, Va did capture one such build all done by eye, no plans. Amazing really.
