Hull 103

The Deltaville Maritime Museum Boat Shop crew John McQueen, Roland Anderson and Boat Shop director John England, from left, with masks temporarily removed and socially distancing, are working on Hull 103 most weekdays, as Holly Point Nature Park continues to remain open daily from dawn to dusk. The Boat Shop is equipped with large windows for visitors to view the progress when volunteers are not there. This 16-foot hull is being built both to subsidize the Boat Shop’s boatbuilding projects and to hone techniques, procedures, and skills as volunteers work toward planning construction of larger deadrises. Hull 102, a 20-footer, is complete, powered, and in the water ready to fish. The lines and dimensions of Hull 102 will act as a prototype for the larger deadrise. Those interested in a one-of-a-kind deadrise and who wish to support the museum’s boat-building operations should call the museum office at 804-776-7200.
