Description: At one point, as many as 2,000 oyster dredging Skipjacks existed on the Bay. Of the few Skipjacks that remain, most are maintained as historical treasures. Some are also used for tourism purposes. Our model creatively shows sails furled (sails down) to allow better viewing of the complex rigging. Model and display case are wooden construction, hand-built, fully assembled, with lots of attention to detail.
Features: Two furled sails (mainsail and jib), blocks and rigging, wooden mast hoops, bowsprit and decorative trailboards, anchor windlass, two anchors with chain, dredge winder, dredge rollers, water barrel, captain’s wheel, aft cabin, deck houses, varnished steering box and hatches, centerboard, rudder and push boat (yawl boat) with varnished engine box, on black davits. Skipjack is securely attached to two brass pedestals in beautiful mahogany finish display case. Acrylic panels (including top panel) keep out dust and unwanted fingers. Velvet material on case bottom prevents furniture scratching.
