Abstract:

Introduction. Timber cutting and transportation was an important part preparations to a sailing ship building. The questions of techniques and organization of different kinds and stages of transportation are under consideration in the article. They are the preparation of logs to the transportation, loading, unloading, ship-masters’ inspections, tug, rafting, steam driving, barging; the role of transportation in price formation is shown as well.

Methods. The study of technologies is important for understanding of historic realities, as technologies determined the possibilities of industry, trade, army and together with it – the economy of state, social and political relations. The technologies of timber stockpiling, transportation and storage played a special role in the 18-19th centuries as they were the stages of preparation to a sailing ship building and so the existence of Empire’s capable navy depended on the success of these activities. The article is an attempt of complex study of the wood transportation process.

Conclusion. The studies materials lead to the conclusions that the price of the materials depended on the efforts needed for the transportation; the problems of the material damaging during the transportation and storage sometimes stultified the transporting efforts. The author describes the technique of tug and different kinds of drive.
