Shad Boats & Sharpies: Traditional Watercraft of the Carolina Coast

Record #:
North Carolina watercraft descended from a long and rich maritime tradition. Wind and water, geography and topography, culture and economics shaped the state’s distinctive watercraft, and the boats shaped the lives of generations of watermen and fishermen. The shape and structure of boats, such as shad boats and sharpies, have evolved over time, but the boat-building traditions continue.
