Description
The fast, nimble pilot schooners of the Chesapeake Bayemployed not only for piloting but also for cargo carryingbegan to build their legend in the eighteenth century, becoming blockade runners during the American Revolution, privateering vessels during the War of 1812, and armed dispatch and policing vessels for European navies. They were also a favored type for the activities of pirates, smugglers, and slavers. Variations of the final clipper model of the Baltimore schooner continued the vessels reputation through the nineteenth century as both great yachts and humble pungy schooners carrying produce. Geoffrey Footner documents the family tree of this distinctive American schooner in both text and illustration, including hull lines from sources around the world.
