Built in 1922, the Elva C. is a Chesapeake style Deck Boat in the RFM's permanent collection. She was used primarily for pound netting. The Elva C. is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and serves as a ferry during the Boat Show taking attendees between the various exhibit docks. Join us for a celebration that afternoon for her 100th birthday!
