Peapods of the Maine Coast
Interviews with 12 individuals who have knowledge of the Peapod. The little double-ended boats known as peapods have played an essential role in the life and history of Maine. They are thought to have originated around 1870, or earlier, around Penobscot Bay. They were the original Maine lobster boat, as fishermen could row either way, and walk up the side to haul a trap. This series of interviews commemorates the boats and captures some of the history and knowledge held by a generation who has seen them pass from working to largely recreational crafts.
