The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum's latest shipyard project is the building of a new log hull canoe, much like past project, Bufflehead. Construction will begin this fall, with the project set to be finished next summer.
This Tilghman Island style, five-log canoe will be built from the excess loblolly pine logs used in the historic restoration of Edna E. Lockwood. The hull is set to reach approximately 32ft in length, with a beam width of 6ft. The building process will kick off in September, with milling of the logs, and continue with shaping the hull into early 2019.
