VIDEO: Md. Dove Shipwrights on European Quest

Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s rebuild of the Maryland Dove is well underway, and its shipwrights are committed to historical accuracy.

How committed? The two men leading the state-funded, $5 million Dove project traveled to Denmark and Sweden just to see the techniques and materials historic shipbuilders used when the original Dove was new.


Cheryl Costello joins the shipwrights, back in St. Michaels now, to see how the replica Dove is taking shape. Watch below:

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is releasing a new YouTube series following the two shipwrights’ journey. To watch the episodes released so far, Advertisement">click here.
