Boston Lighthouse 1716The first Lighthouse built in the United States.

Carmen 1850The Spanish pailebote Carmen was built in 1850. With a capacity of 250 tonnes it plied the Mediterranean throughout its years of service, transporting commercial loads in competition with the big steam ships. It was able to survive thanks to lower freight charges.
Rigged out as a schooner, with spankers and gaff topsails, it was called a "pailebote", a corruption of the English "Pilot boat", a type of small schooner with little rigging used by harbour pilos, hence the name.

Cutty Sark Tea ClipperThe Cutty Sark is named after the short shirt worn by the fleet-footed witch featured in the poem Tam o' Shanter written by Robert Burns. She was designed by Hercules Linton and built in 1869 at Dumbarton in Scotland, by the firm of Scott & Linton, for Captain John "Jock" "White Hat" Willis, and launched November 23 of that year.

The Cutty Sark was destined for the China tea trade, at that time an intensely competitive race across the globe from China to London, with immense profits to the ship to arrive with the first tea of the year. However, she did not distinguish herself in this trade; in the most famous race, against Thermopylae in 1872, both ships left Shanghai together on June 18, but two weeks later Cutty Sark lost her rudder after passing through the Sunda Strait, and arrived in London on October 18, a week after Thermopylae, for a total passage of 122 days. Her legendary reputation is supported by the fact that her captain chose to continue this race with an improvised rudder instead of putting into port for a replacement, yet was only beaten by one week.

Robert E. LeeThanks to the advent of steam in the early 18th century shallow draft boats with large paddle wheels were built that were capable of carrying both passengers and large amounts of goods.
The paddle wheels driven by enormous steam engines were mounted at the back of the boat or one on either side.
The riverboats were constantly being improved. Speed brought with it memorable competitions, with boats racing against each other to which was the fastest on the Big River. Perhaps the most famous of all the riverboat races, was the one that took place in June 1870 from New Orleans to St. Louis between the Natchez IV and the Robert E Lee. The Robert E Lee covered the 1200 miles in 3 days, 18 hours and 14 minutes, a record that still stands to this day. The Natchez took 4 days and 51 minutes.

This type of boat known as a "Tjalk" was once very common in the Netherlands and was used as a light cargo boat on the country's inland waterways. The fact it does not have a keel allowed it to navigate very shallow waters.
This is also why its two skegs are on the sides of the boat. The usual crew consists of two people.
Championships are held for these boats, of which the most famous is the one known as "Skutsjesilen"
