Skipjacks hold an important position in the history of the Chesapeake Bay. 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. Only a few Skipjacks remain on the Bay today. The oyster dredging season runs from October through March but you can have this Skipjack on display all year long!

Bottom of base has protective black felt.
