Description

Nifty model that's good for beginners. This sailing model includes distinctive details the Skipjacks are known for, including trail boards, strongly raked leg of mutton rig and tiny push boat hanging in stern davits. Sails and rudder adjust for "free sailing" or you can get a spool of fishing line in lieu of a chase boat. 

If you get to St Michaels Maritime Museum in Maryland, be sure to catch a ride on one of these oyster boats. We did a WoodenBoat Show there, and the whole crew got to go out one evening, which was especially nice as they maintained their true workboat demeanor. 

Geared for ages 10 and up.

    I am in the beginning stages of building the skip jack but can tell by reading the instructions THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN! I am excited undertaking this model it's my first boat as opposed to plastic model car kits. I have examined the parts and all looks well, no complaints as of yet. It is a worthwhile investment and glad I purchased. Peace!

    Shipped VERY quickly, arrived in perfect condition

    I ordered a model boat kit for my sailor-brother-in-law, though I didn't think of it as a present until a few days beforehand. The folks at Wooden Boat were able to get it to him in time for his birthday, and he was thrilled with it!
