Barge
A barge is a flat-bottomed ship, built mainly for river and canal transport of heavy goods. Some barges are not self-propelled and must be towed or pushed by towboats, canal barges or towed by draft animals on an adjacent towpath. Barges contended with the railway in the early Industrial Revolution, but were outcompeted in the carriage of high-value items due to the higher speed, falling costs and route flexibility of railways.Contents1 Etymology 2 Types 3 Modern use 4 Towed or otherwise unpowered barges in the United States 5 Image gallery 6 See also 7 References 8 External linksEtymology[edit] Barge

Whaleboat
A whaleboat or whaler is a type of open boat that is relatively narrow and pointed at both ends, enabling it to move either forwards or backwards equally well. It was originally developed for whaling, and later became popular for work along beaches, since it does not need to be turned around for beaching or refloating. The term "whaleboat" may be used informally of larger whalers, or of a boat used for whale watching.Contents1 Modern applications 2 Uses in war 3 Construction 4 Whaling 5 See also 6 References 7 External linksModern applications[edit] Today whaleboats are used as safety vessels aboard marine vessels. The United States Coast Guard
United States Coast Guard
has been using them since 1791. Their simple open structure allows for easy access and personnel loading in the event of an emergency. These whaleboats are now considered very important, and highly regimented safety vessels
