F.D. Crockett

Deltaville, Virginia 

The F.D. Crockett was built in 1924 in Seaford, Virginia. She worked the waters of the Chesapeake Bay hauling freight, operating as a buy-boat and dredging oysters until 1994. In 2005, the Deltaville Maritime Museum began a complete restoration of the boat. Today, the F.D. Crockett is on display in the water at the museum and travels up and down the bay, a living reminder of the past.

More information on the F.D. Crockett and its history may be found on the Deltaville Maritime Museum's website.

    1. Ed, the Deltaville Maritime Museum is a real gem way off the beaten path. It was not on my itenerary for this trip and I came upon by accident and spent a very pleasant afternoon visiting. Sometimes taking the wrong turn pays off.
