On June 26, the historic log canoe Flying Cloud arrived at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD, where it has joined the largest collection of Chesapeake Bay watercraft in the world. The boat was donated to CBMM by brothers Allan Noble and John Noble of Oxford, MD. The Nobles’ father had purchased Flying Cloud in 1955.
“This is a great acquisition for us,” said CBMM’s Chief Curator Pete Lesher. “Now, the museum will have two log canoes in our fleet—the smaller Edmee S. and the Flying Cloud, which is the second largest racing log canoe in existence today.”
