Inscription.  This nineteen-foot oystering and crabbing boat was built in 1983 by Francis Goddard of Piney Point, Maryland. Although of relatively recent origin, her design is traditional and she is one of the last of her type to be built in Southern Maryland. This bateau, as she is called on the Chesapeake, was used by "Web" Poe at St. George Island, St. Mary's County, Maryland, for oyster tonging in winter and trotlining for crabs in summer.
 
Erected by Calvert Marine Museum.
