Overview

The people of Deal's Island make their living by harvesting the various fisheries of the Chesapeake Bay. The people were there before the roads and the bridges. They got around in the boats that they designed and built by themselves.

With beautiful color photographs, helpful drawings, and a wealth of knowledge that comes from years of craftsmanship, Steve Rogers leads the reader through the building of a model of the North Carolina Spritsail Skiff, one of the many truly ingenious and unique craft that developed in this environment. The model is in one-inch scale and is built in much the same way as the actual boat was. Clear step-by-step directions are given for everything for the jigs to the sails.
