Winter Lecture: Memoir of a Skipjack
Thursday, January 17, 2019

Randolph George will provide a definition of a Chesapeake Bay skipjack and explain what made these vessels unique to the Chesapeake region. He will also discuss methods of design and construction at local boatyards (Bronza’s Boatyard), skipjacks WILMA LEE and the MARTHA LEWIS, and reasons why these iconic vessels and their stories should be preserved. The current status of skipjacks on the Bay and the future of these traditional commercial vessels will be included as well.

You will be challenged to question and to learn by engaging speakers on eight diverse topics including maritime history, local history, science and maritime art.
