1. Scoot (Reproduction) Marker
Inscription.  Scoot was built in 1989 by Winslow Womack of St. Michaels, Maryland. Her design is based on plans by Howard I. Chapelle for a 20-foot Chesapeake "sharpie," a craft with a double-ended hull and a shallow, V-shaped bottom. The boat is similar to earlier Hooper Island sharpies, used for crabbing, gunning, and racing. The spars were formerly used in the racing log canoe Island Blossom, and have been modified to fit Scoot.
 
Erected by Calvert Marine Museum.
