In the early 1800's it became a maritime law requirement that vessels affix names and origins on sterns, bows and quarters. Often ornate and accompanied by a figurehead, impressive carvings, incised letters and paint were crafted and could be seen for afar.
The naming of one's vessel is one of the most important life decisions and often represents a loved one, an important person, another vessel or a defining moment. A Chesapeake commercial and working vessel's name frequently becomes interchangeable with that of her Captain.
