The standard barge was the workhorse ship of trade. They transported grain, silk, and other bulky goods up and down stream. Propelled by square sails and broad sweeps. [1] Barges were very large, slow-moving, and typically heavily laden. They were the supply ships of entire fleets, and the largest were staffed by a crew of one hundred. [2] Typically, a merchant would live aboard his vessel, docking it to sell his goods. They were used primarily in rivers and lakes. [3]
