21 - Chesapeake Bay Skipjack

The "Skipjack" is the last working sailboat to ply the American waters in any significant numbers. Perhaps the best known vessel connected with the Chesapeake Bay, these vessels possessed a highly raked mast and a large amount of sail area, giving them the power necessary to haul the dredging equipment used to collect oysters. Our model represents a 48 foot long vessel known as an "Oyster Pirate". Operated by poachers and pursued often by the authorities, they dredged at night on oyster beds, and were known for their speed. The Skipjack’s continued use is decreed by state fishery laws, since they do far less damage to the oyster beds than a fleet of modern power dredges. At the turn of the century, approximately 2000 Skipjack’s comprised the oyster fleet. There are now less than 40 remaining in the United States today.

This scale model of the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack is handcrafted, one of a kind, constructed in Canada by a seasoned model ship builder. Finely crafted using the highest quality sapele, american walnut and fine lime woods, the level of detail and refined workmanship of this model is sure to be a treasured heirloom for any collector.
