Description

These open boats were long in use in the Downs, both for putting pilots on board and also for taking out the mails. They were designed to be fast under sail and also to be convenient for boarding ships under way. These boats were all clincher-built with a straight stem, a narrow verticle transom, and considerable depth amidships. The ' Deal Galleys' were in common use about 1890 and did not disappear entirely until after the Great War."""""""
