18th Century Longboat - Neil Hurwitz

The longboat was the largest boat aboard an 18th century ship. The ship’s principal lifeboat, it was also used for coming and going to the ship to transport supplies and take empty water casks ashore to be filled with fresh water. Longboats were kept fully provisioned at all times in case of an emergency.
