Significance: The bugeye LOUISE TRAVERS was the last surviving bugeye built by James T. Marsh, a Chesapeake Bay builder who is credited with developing the stern "duck tail" or "box" which enclosed a bugeye's rudderstock, thus protecting it from collision with other vessels in crowded harbors. His development was widely adopted in the Bay area. Though much altered from her original appearance, this vessel was recorded because her hull construction was thought to be representative of Marsh's frame hull construction methods.
