Painting of The Captain Woods Buy Boat
Here she is in her glory. In the day of old when the Buy Boats were plentiful along with the Skip Jacks, their presence meant long days on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Work boats would come along side of these wonderful vessels to off load their bountiful catch of the day, then go back to harvesting again.
Like the Skip Jacks, the Buy Boat can be found in just a few places with numbers less than a dozen. Seeing one is a treat to be remembered for a life time.
