“Piscataqua, A New Gundalow for New Hampshire” | Wooden Boat Magazine #233, July/August 2013, by Jenny Bennett The whole neighborhood, it seemed, had come out to watch. Slowly but surely, the tractor-trailer inched its long, heavy load down the narrow street, around impossibly tight corners, and at last onto the bridge that led to Peirce Island and the launching ramp. It was a happy, excited crowd of onlookers. Some were little more than curious passers-by, but many had waited for this moment with passion and patience for a decade or longer. This short journey from building yard to riverside was the culmination […]

Though unlike the dinosaur, this relic is alive. The current gundalow cruises the river that, at its height, held dozens of the flat-bottomed, wooden cargo barges at a time. The Piscataqua […]
