Lincolnville Wherry | A Penobscot Bay salmon boat

Lincolnville Wherry | Model Boat Kit
 Built to an ancient design probably brought from Europe by the first settlers, these practical small boats were ideal for the in-shore salmon fishery that helped support Maine communities during the 19th century. Wherries were primarily used to set the salmon nets and to bring the trapped fish to shore. Thin lapstrake planking on naturally curved cedar ribs made them unusually light and strong. Our kit is based upon a surviving wherry in the collection of the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, ME. This one is truly a jewel. I have this model on display in my home.
