Bermuda Sloop - Like a Chaloupe?




These are photographs I took (1998) at the Maritime Museum in Bermuda. Barthelemy Bergeron d'Amboise worked the Bay of Fundy with a "chaloupe", which, in his case, I take to be very similar to a sloop, though chaloupes can actually encompass a variety of types. Being friends with a Bostonian merchant, Captain James Blinn, I speculate that he may even have bought or been given a Bermuda sloop from/by Blinn.

The sign next to the painting in the museum read: "The Best in the World - the 18th Century Bermuda Sloop. In the late 1600s, Bermudians began to build small sloops noted for their speed, durability and weatherliness. They were popular in peace and war, with merchants, navies, privateers and pirates and formed the backbone of the of the local shipbuilding industry for over 100 years." (Note the gun ports on this sleek vessel!)
