    Does anyone know the identity of the Schooner depicted in this drawing? I found it in an article on the Chicago Maritime Museum website entitled "Steamboats and Steel Hulls". Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    It's EUGENE, a little Great Lakes Scow Schooner...

    << Edit: Just saw below the picture on the above linked web page the note ‘‘Basic scow-schooner. Chicago Maritime Museum’’ so it's probably not EUGENE we see there, and they probably just used the picture from the museum to illustrate the article. >>

    To increase your on-screen display, in Windows and maybe some other programs, for a better view of the above rather small scans...

    If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel:

    - then simply increase and decrease the size of on-screen text and graphics by pressing the "Ctrl" key while scrolling up and down.​

    If you you don't have a mouse with a scroll wheel, or just prefer to use the keyboard, then simply increase/decrease the size of on-screen text and graphics:

    - to increase, simultaneously press the keys: "Ctrl" and the "Plus Sign (+)"

    - to decrease, simultaneously press the keys: "Ctrl" and the "Minus Sign (-)"

    - to go back to standard display, simultaneously press the keys: "Ctrl" and "Zero (0)"​

    Considering the source of the document, it's probably a great lakes Pound Net Boat or a small trading scow.

    <edit> too funny, cross posted and posted the exact same photo.

    BTW, this site describes the photo as a ship "similar to the Rockaway" - http://michiganshipwrecks.org/shipw...gories/shipwrecks-found/rockaway/scowschooner

    That's remarkable. If you in post #2 click on the "Rockaway" link, and then in the web page that appears click on the picture, then you're on the above linked page.

    P.S. - - - - - :confused:

    Angelique, Thank you for the valuable tip about increasing or decreasing the size of the on screen image. Why did I not know how to do that? There is much that we crusty old geriatrics know, and similarly, much that they do not know.

    I believe that a bunch of old guys in Crystal River Florida have recently built such a boat. It is a boat that was once fairly common in Florida's inland waterways as a freighter, mail boat, or whatever it needed to be. The fellows who built the boat used native materials, almost no power tools, and tried to keep the build as near authentic as they could. ....Does anyone have more details about this noble effort?
