WHALEBOAT - 19th Century


From 1720 to 1920 nearly 60,000 whaleboats were built by the American whaling industry. With a useful life of no more than three years, whaleboats were discarded on the spot throughout the coastal U.S. and around the world. Remarkably, only a dozen or two have survived to become part of today’s museum collectives
