From what I have researched, the ships docked in VA, and then smaller boats took them along the Water ways to where they were going to be living, These smaller boats were made by my Many Great Grandfather Thomas NUNN, also seen as Bun Bunn and the like.

HE was also a Surgeon in the area at the time. But was not concerned a Doctor.

These smaller boats were also used to transport tobacco the colonist grew to be shipped back to England. These small boats were then docked with the larger ships and shipped back to England.

This might not but much but hope this helps a little.
Wish I had more information also.
