Skipjacks were built as early as 1888 and sailed until just 40 years ago. The watermen who sailed them had a unique way of life. We are dedicated to preserving their heritage by documenting their histories, teaching others about how they lived, and keeping the remaining 30 skipjacks afloat.

Your membership can help preserve both the watermen's way of life and the only sail-powered oyster fleet in America.
