The " Edmee S. " is a Chesapeake Bay log canoe. She was built in the Tilghman Island style from hewn logs by Oliver Duke in the 1930's. She is one of the last 22 Chesapeake Bay racing log canoes, and is actively raced with a crew of nine to eleven people. Her original name was "Cecilia Mae", but was renamed for Edmee S. Combs, whose husband funded the restoration. The hull was covered with fiberglass during the restoration.
