Reedsville Fishermen’s Museum Given Historical Boat

The Reedville Fishermen’s Museum has been given a 99-year-old boat. The Fannie is a traditional Chesapeake Deadrise Draketail with a Dolphin Nose Stern. It’s 36 feet in length, has a 6-foot beam and a 2-foot, 6-inch draft, and it was built in 1924 by Charles Spencer who built two boats in his yard in St. Michaels, Maryland. The Fannie was named after his daughter. Fannie will now be a pleasure craft capable of carrying six passengers and two crew. She will be used by members and guests at Cocktails on the Creek.
