series: Bugeye: A Chesapeake Legacy
air date: 12/19/12 5:00 AM
Bugeye is the Chesapeake Bay's water-borne workhorse that plied this region's waters for more than a century. As the precursor to the Skipjack, the Bugeye did it all - oyster dredging, fishing, and long- and short-haul transport of just about any kind of cargo - even watermelons grown on the Eastern Shore. Maryland Public Television started following the story of Dixon and his Bugeye in 2004, visiting his St. Michael's boatworks shed regularly to capture the tradition of hand-built boatmaking first-hand. The finished product is Bugeye: A Chesapeake Legacy, a fun-loving look at Dixon's labor of love from keel-laying to launch to time under sail on the open Chesapeake Bay.
