The Odyssey of the Periauger


Abstract:
A replica of a periauger was built at the North Carolina Maritime Museum Watercraft Center in Beaufort in 2004. The construction took seven months and involved 30 volunteers working 8,400 hours. The log boat was the state's workboat during the 18th- and early 19th-centuries. The replica will be moored at the Newbold-White House near Hertford, where it will serve as an interpretive teaching tool. The article describes the boat's three-week journey to its home port in Hertford.
