1. Portion of Hull, Unidentified Bugeye Marker
Inscription.  The hull fragment from an unidentified bugeye was recovered from the Magothy River in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The fragment forms part of the bottom of a seven- or nine-log bugeye of early vintage. Clearly evident is the slot in the center log for the centerboard, which acts like a movable keel. The logs are fastened together with mortise-and-tenon joints, secured with wooden pegs. Later boats used iron "drifts" (large rods) to fasten the logs to each other.
 
Erected by Calvert Marine Museum.
