Famous in the Chesapeake Bay area, these were the working oyster/crabbing boats that are so pretty to behold. This model features laser-precision cut parts, and is made from birch and balsa. Thorough plans and instructions, plus all the hardware needed, as well as sails and display stand. There is no running hardware, as this is a static model. Tools (very basic) and paint are not included.

Skipjack assembly

The backbone piece made out of balsa is too flimsy and didn’t stay straight. This was a problem when mounting the deck . Also It it broke by the bowsprit as a result of a minor bump.

A great way to spend your time during COVID 19 quarantine. The model comes with great instructions and the final product is a beautiful replica of My favorite sailboat architecture.
