Chowning, Larry S.  
Chesapeake Bay Buyboats
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 2003 Centreville, MD.
ISBN: 0870335537 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall First edition (stated). "Buyboats are part of the Chesapeake's maritime heritage. They evolved from the sailing schooners, bugeyes, pungies, and log canoes so familiar in the Bay's background. In the early 1900s, when suitably sized gasoline or diesel engines became available, many of these sailboats were converted to powerboats, even though they continued to exhibit components of their sailing past. A shortened mast with its original boom could be used to hoist cargo as well as sails. Once the small-boat engines became sufficiently powerful and reliable, sails were simply phased out over time. Builders began to construct new boats - buyboats -specifically designed for engine power. One of the most amazing features of all theses boats - sail, conversions, or new - is the way they were built or modified. Boatyards were often backyard businesses, family owned and operated, situated at the ends of the many peninsulas that reach out to the Bay. For years, all the work was done with hand tools, often with no real plans. Watching a boatwright work with an axe to shape a piece of wood to fit an unusual turn of the hull, particularly when the desired shape exists only in the eye of the builder, is truly watching an art form. Thanks to the efforts of some special people who genuinely love these boats, a few have been restored or rebuilt to serve new purposes as charter boats, movable classrooms, or floating homes. As long as the interest remains, the art of these boats will never be truly lost. While it is fascinating to learn about the boats, it is even more so to hear from so many of the people who were involved with them. By including the personal narratives, the author has presented a generous slice of life on the Bay, spanning many decades." Well illustrated with black-and-white photographs. xi + 260 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD condition.
