Iva W. returns to Deltaville Maritime Museum
|The Iva W. was built by John Wright for Captain Johnny Ward of Deltaville.|
The popular Pierwalk exhibit “Iva W.,” the 1929 converted buyboat, has returned to the dock at the Deltaville Maritime Museum. She joins the Captain John Smith “Explorer,“ the in-construction “F.D. Crockett” and other boats of the museum flotilla.
‘Iva’ was built by John Wright for Captain Johnny Ward of Deltaville.
Holly Point Nature Park and the Pierwalk at the museum are open dawn to dusk daily. Boarding is allowed when the boats are attended.
Completing her annual bottom and sides maintenance at Chesapeake Marine Railway, ‘Iva’ cruised to Urbanna last weekend for a command performance for “Art on the Half Shell.” Berthing at Upton’s Point, over 100 visitors trod her decks.
Leaving Urbanna at 10 a.m. on Sunday for a members’ Mother’s Day cruise, she arrived safely at the museum dock in Deltaville at 12:30 p.m.
She will be at Fishing Bay Yacht Club in Deltaville on Friday, June 5, for “Art on Fishing Bay.”
The Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, is at 287 Jackson Creek Road and Mill Creek in Deltaville. The park is open dawn to dusk.
