History of the Flattie Chesapeake Bay Fishing Boat

The term Flattie indicated in local slang, a boat typical of Chesapeake Bay on the north-east coast of the United States. Attributable to the wide range of boats with V-shaped hull, the Flattie, like all popular boats was of a complex historical evolution and structural adaptation to uses and environments. Between 5 and 9 metres in length, the boat was particularly flat and wide in deck.

Already present in the waters of the bay around the middle of last century, the FLATTIE – Chesapeake Bay Fishing Boat reached its peak in use in 1880-1890. Originally used to carry local products it was later widely used for the collection of oysters and crabs. This was carried out ploughing the depths. With a short, strong net bag, dragged from the boat by a cable.
