The Shallop. 1859. From The Book of the Thames from its Rise to its Fall, p. 393. “The Shallop is a boat built on the same principle as the skiff, but of a much larger size, and with an awning to cover the sitters; thus awning is sometimes supported by a light iron framework, and sometimes it is formed of wood” (393).
