American Colonial Workboat Take a ride Sept 6 2014!

Be sure to visit the replica of an early American colonial workboat that is anchored in Hertford's public dock on the Perquimans River behind the municipal building off Grubb Street. The Periauger is an authentic representation, and the only one of its kind, of a boat from the prerevolutionary period. It is a cypress split dug-out boat, 30 feet long, with a 7 foot beam, two sails and eight sweeps. In colonial America, settlers traveled the waterways in common boats, called Periaugers, which were considered the waterway pick-up trucks of their time. A Periauger was considered the most reliable means of transportation during the early 1700s.
You can ride on the Periauger on Saturday September 6, 2014 at 10am12pm and 2pm. Please be at the town public dock 15-20 minutes before sailing time so that waiver releases can be completed. The sail lasts approximately 30-45 minutes.
