Driving bateau

These sturdy boats were used in log drives to transport men and equipment to wherever the action was the hottest, and to provide a working platform when they got there. Needless to say, it required great skill to guide them through whitewater filled with rambunctious logs. (At the Leonard's Mills Logging Museum)
