What boating was like 400 years ago at Jamestown

When the first settlers arrived at Jamestown over 400 years ago, there was no GPS to guide them through unknown waters. Today, an historical recreation of that journey is taking place.

WUSA9.com features a story on The Shallop, a replica of Capt. Capt. John Smith’s boat that explored the Chesapeake Bay, part of the celebration to commemorate Jamestown’s anniversary.

According to the story…

The Shallop’s 121-day voyage over 1,500 miles will retrace much of Smith’s journey.
