Sails & Rails This fully illustrated history of seagoing vessels named Nahant was carefully researched by naval historians Daniel DeStefano and Gerald Butler. From graceful cutters with checkered pasts, to stalwart tug boats, the histories of these crafts named Nahant come alive...especially through the original watercolor illustrations painted by DeStefano.

"Some crewmembers brought their families on board the civilian barges to live, and within large ports, such as New York, the barge community grew to be quite large. Cabin areas were widened, and bright curtains adorned windows. On certain days, weekly laundry donated color to the vessels’ appearances, while during warm months, pots held flowers and vegetables." —page 65

An interesting read for those who love the sea, this history is the best we've come across of the ships named for the picturesque isle of Nahant...and will appeal to lovers of nautical lore, local history, and fine watercolors alike.
