Annapolis Maritime MuseumIn the 20th century, overharvesting, disease, pollution and the dramatic growth of the Bay region's human population led to the decline in commercial fishing for oysters, crabs and other seafood species. As a result, the number of wooden boats working the Bay dwindled. In the 1950s and '60s, the introduction of fiberglass hulls and synthetic sails and rigging made boating more affordable and accessible and led to an explosion of recreational powerboats and sailboats.
