From Skiffs to Sail Ferries: The Story of Vermont’s Small Boat Traditions

Live Event
July 13: 6:00 pm

The stories of Vermont naval history and commercial shipping have been well documented by generations of historians. However, the traditions of small boat building from throughout our state have remained untold. The bulk of our historic boatbuilding traditions involves Vermonters building their own boats, whether for pleasure or commercial use. The historical record illuminating this subject resides today mostly in family stories and photo collections.

In this slide presentation, Douglas Brooks shares his research on these traditions, and his work in recreating some of these historic vessels.
