A Fast Boat

Or, at least it looks fast, to me.

In May, we visited The Mariners’ Museum in Newport News, Virginia.  One of the areas of the museum is The International Small Craft Center.

From a collection of over 150 small craft, the Mariner’s Museum staff have arranged 75 vessels in a 17,500 square foot center.

The collection includes finely finished Chris-Crafts, simple dugouts, fragile, thin racing shells and much more.

My nautical experience was primarily on a large submersible, but I do appreciate other vessels.  The symmetry of this bow on shot of this beautiful wooden hulled boat caught my eye.

I generally try to take photos of the descriptions of displays, but, in this case, I don’t have any further information.


I’ve added 2 new Virginia photo galleries to my Haw Creek site – The Mariners’ Museum in Newport News and images from the Virginia Beach ocean front.  All of the photos were taken on May 10, 2009.
