- “Boston port records for 1753 reveal a brief shipbuilding boom in that year, especially as the West Indian markets continued to expand and merchants needed more ships to bring provisions to sustain the plantation complex. Yet most of vessels were not built in Boston. . .The largest number of ships [23%]. . . were from shipyards in the Plymouth region: Hingham, Hull, Scituate, Hanover, Bridgewater, Pembroke, Marshfield, Duxbury, Kingston, and Plymouth.” Dr. Eric Kimball An Essential Link In A Vast Chain: New England And The West Indies, unpublished Ph. D. dissertation. p. 341
