    Gundalow
    (24 items)

    Above photo is of a replica Gundalow, built in 1982- the Edward H. Adams. From Wikipedia: A gundalow is a type of flat-bottom cargo vessel once common in Maine and New Hampshire rivers. Up to 70 feet (21.34 m) long, they characteristically employed tidal currents for propulsion, with a single lateen sail to harness favorable winds.
    Cannon-sporting gunboat style gundalows were built and deployed on Lake Champlain by both British and American forces during the American Revolutionary War, meeting in combat at the Battle of Valcour Island.

      The Gundalow was used to transport cargo such as bricks and masts to port cities such as Portsmouth, NH. They were well suited for negotiating tidal estuaries.

      you answered my question - to transport cargo around the portsmouth harbor. once, i left durham in a little tiny rubber raft and rode the current all the way to strawberry banke. it was a very fun and sometimes scary adventure. i popped right out of the water on some of those huge standing waves.

      Glad to hear you made it safely to Stawberry Bank, as currents in the Piscataqua River, coupled with waves, can be treacherous.
