the Bahama DinghyA small study sailing boat was essential for coastal and island residents in a time before roads and bridges. Used for trips to nearby settlements to buy and sell supplies, to transport cargo and people to and from sailing ships anchored off the coast, and for fishing, sponging and salvaging - the Bahama dighy was the pick-up truck of its time.The "Eileen" was named from Eileen Hoffman whose family and the Villagers, Inc. funded the restoration of this Bahama dinghy which was donated by Bill Munroe, grandson of Commodore Ralph Munroe, an early Miami pioneer.Captions:single sailsteering tillerelegant linesheart-shaped transom (back end) constructed with basic hand tools with local available timbershallow keel allows navigation near coral reefs and sandbarsusually 12 to 16 feet long
