Officially designated “Maryland State Boat” in 1985, Skipjacks are sturdy, single-masted, oyster dredging boats, ideally suited for the relatively shallow and often tempestuous waters of the Chesapeake Bay. At one point, as many as 2,000 Skipjacks existed but today, only a few remain, with most maintained for historical and tourism purposes. The oyster dredging season runs from October through March but you can have this Skipjack on display all year long!
