Two papers and discussions are presented on the care of old and relatively new wooden ships. The first was taken with some editing from the proceedings of the Bath Marine Museum's Symposium on American Maritime History, held on May 6-8, 1977, and mainly concerns the maintenance of the U.S.S. Constitution. The second paper is a manual for the maintenance of the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater prepared in 1976 by Maynard Bray. Special care of wooden ships is a skill now limited to a few and efforts are being made to perpetuate these skills.
