The Buccaneer, a five-masted barkentine painted to look like a pirate ship (photographed minus some masts in 1936 at Hastings' Tower Ridge Yacht Club), was a feature of the riverfront for decades. With its wooden hull, it was already outmoded when built in Texas in 1918, but as The City of Beaumont, it sailed the Atlantic as a freighter before becoming a floating nightclub here in the 1930s.

The Lancaster, cuyo casco era de acero, era también una plataforma para chozas usadas por los pescadores para ahumar y vender la pesca del día.
