The perfect book for boat nerds!
The history of the whaleback ships, on the five Great Lakes and onthe seven seas, is long and colorful. Many thrilling adventures, mishaps, mysteries and numerous heroic rescues all played a part in the whaleback story. Several of the iconic boats sailed for close to three quarters of a century before being dismantled as scrap. Sadly, many other whalebacks sailed for far less time and met a far more unfortunate fate.
