Prior to the passing of sailing vessels in the early 1900s there was a type of vessel known as a ram. Barge like bodies equipped with sails, rams plied rivers and sounds without the aid of tug boats. Flat bottomed vessels, approximately 125 feet in length, rams drew very little water and excelled in narrow waterways.
