SCOTLAND - During the mid to late 1700's small ships like the Scotland were used for transporting goods and passengers in the Baltic. Only 50-60 feet long, their impressive sails and pleasing soft hull lines distinguished them from other types of work boats. In a note dated 1775, the famous naval architect, F.H. Chapman referred to this type of ship as a “Baltic Vessel”
