Log Canoes


Lainie Wrightson


Photograph - Photography


Log Canoes originally Chesapeake Bay work boats are an undecked sailing craft 20 to 40 feet long assembled using up to seven logs. Sometimes the topsides or upper parts of the hull were framed and planked and sharp at both ends. Sailing rigs varied but usually consisted of one or two sharp-headed spritsails, with or without a jib set on raking, unstayed masts.
Used between the 1700s – early 1900s. Raced as early as 1859 with still some racing today. Originally used for Oyster tonging; today used only for pleasure and racing.
The use of log canoes for oystering fell off after 1915, when gasoline-powered work boats came on the scene. Modern racing log canoes blend traditional boats and sailing rigs with modern sailing technology. To balance the large spread of sails, racing log canoes carry large crews that “hike” out on springboards (planks set out to one side). Photo taken on the Miles River, St. Michaels, Maryland.
