Description: Draketail workboats have a distinctive rounded stern with a "reverse rake" transom. Draketails (also called Dovetails) originated on Hoopers Island, MD and they were among the first workboats outfitted with a gasoline engine. Draketails have a narrow beam, resulting in higher speeds than other workboats. This led to some of these vessels being used during Prohibition for transporting alcohol! The Draketail design eventually gave way to the more popular Box Stern design. Few Draketails still exist today.
