The Skipjacks of the Chesapeake Bay comprise the last remaining fleet of working sailboats in North America. Used primarily for oyster dredging in winter months their powerful and efficient design has remained unchanged for over one hundred years! Seaworthy Small Ships' semi-scale model accurately depicts Skipjack details including the distinctive cutwater, trail boards, strongly raked leg of mutton rig and tiny push boat hanging in stern davits. Like her full size counterpart this model unmistakably reflects her Chesapeake heritage.

From the fastening of the keel to decorating the trail boards, clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions and plans guide you through launching and first successful sail.  Easy to adjust sails and rudder insure successful voyages whether sailing free across a bond or on a light fishing line from shore.   Oysters beware.
