Originally built to work the oyster beds around New York City, the catboat migrated down the New Jersey coast after the Civil War. The type evolved as it moved, becoming the general-purpose workboat along the back bays and, eventually, a sophisticated racing boat that still competes today. In this talk, we will take a look at how working sailing vessels developed and the forces driving that development, touching on everything from technological change to shifting social hierarchies.
