Chesapeake Bay Pungy Schooner Lady Maryland at CBMM

CBMM_LadyMaryland2Guests to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. can see Lady Maryland dockside from Monday, October 23 through Wednesday, October 25.

Built in 1985 by the Living Classrooms Foundation, Lady Maryland is a replica of a Chesapeake Bay pungy schooner. Pungies were considered fast sailing vessels in the 1800s, and were primarily used as workboats carrying perishable cargo such as oysters, watermelons, tomatoes, fish, peaches, and grain.

Throughout the warmer months, CBMM’s marina is host to numerous visiting tall ships and vessels, with on-board programming and dockside tour opportunities. For more information about docking at CBMM, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916. For more about Lady Maryland and the Living Classroom Foundation, go to livingclassrooms.org.

As a workboat, Edna dredged for oysters through the winter and carried freight, such as lumber, grain or produce, after the dredging season ended. She was donated to CBMM by John R. Kimberly in 1973, and named a National Historic Landmark in 1994, representing the last historic log-bottom bugeye still under sail.  Project updates and more about the historic bugeye’s restoration can be found at ednalockwood.org

CBMM floating fleet prepped for winter

CBMM_DorothyLee_Engine(ST MICHAELS, MD – October 19, 2017) Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Shipwright James DelAguila reports that the St. Michaels museum’s floating fleet of historic vessels is being prepped for the colder months after a full summer of upgrades.

With CBMM’s railway maintenance season wrapped up, new full-time marine mechanic Josh Richardson had the opportunity to do some much needed catch-up on systems maintenance before decommissioning vessels for the season. Richardson made sure that all vessels were in top shape for the fall’s planned trips, and continues to make sure CBMM’s collection boats are able to continue traveling as ambassadors all over the Chesapeake Bay.

CBMM_EdnaLockwood_FairingOver the winter, shipwrights, apprentices, volunteers and interns can spend a greater amount of time on the Edna Lockwood restoration, as the painstaking work of fitting and fastening her new log hull to her original topsides continues. All work is being done in full view for the public, with limitless opportunities to ask questions about this unique build. For more Edna Lockwood’s historic restoration, visit ednalockwood.org.

Richardson joins Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum  

CBMM_RichardsonJoshua_2017(ST MICHAELS, MD – October 18, 2017) Joshua Richardson of Easton, Md. has joined the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. as Marine Mechanic. In this position, Richardson assists in engine maintenance and repair operations of CBMM’s floating fleet of historic Chesapeake boats, as well as boats donated and sold in its charity boat donation program. Richardson is also helping teach basic engine maintenance and repair skills to CBMM’s shipwright apprentices, as well as to youth enrolled in CBMM’s Rising Tide After-School Boatbuilding program. 

Richardson brings more than 15 years of marine technician experience to the position, including his most recent work at Easton Point Marina. He is a graduate of the Marine Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Fl. and served as a heavy equipment mechanic while enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.  

 “We’re grateful for the addition of Josh to our team through this new position,” said CBMM Boatyard Manager Michael Gorman. “This helps fulfill our goal of having a fully functioning boatyard here, so that preserving these boats can be done more thoroughly and efficiently.”   

Richardson has been connected to the Bay his entire life, first as the son of a Chesapeake waterman growing up in St. Michaels, Md., and later enjoying the Chesapeake as a recreational boater. 

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Charitable gifts to the museum’s annual fund enable CBMM to preserve and restore the largest collection of Chesapeake watercraft in the world, and can be made online at cbmm.org/donate.
