Part of Michael Gorman's intent was to add another racing Log Canoe to the Chesapeake Bay's dwindling fleet, but the ultimate cause was to use the project as a training exercise for the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum's staff and volunteers, who would later restore Edna E.

Small Talk: Old-fashioned boat building is alive and well

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is rebuilding the queen of its fleet, the 54-foot Edna E. Lockwood. You can watch the ongoing project to restore the hull, while asking the workers questions.

The old oyster boat or “Bugeye” has two masts and three sails. During the winters of 1889 through 1967, it worked the oyster beds of the Chesapeake Bay. It was later used as a family boat and then donated to the museum in 1974.
