Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime ParkDuring the early 1800s, shipyards dotted Baltimore's Harbor. Many of them drew vessels in need of repair from waters up and down the Atlantic coast. Repairs ranged from minor sail mendings to complicated restorative hull work rendered by skilled shipwrights and carpenters. Marine railways pulled and lifted boats out of the water so that they could be repaired. Vessels were floated into a carriage or cradle and then pulled up the rails out of the water by horses, mules, or oxen. Shipyard workers often lent their hands and body strength as they guided heavy watercraft from the harbor.
