Chesapeake Skipjack 'Nancy' Model Boat by Anchor Bay
Since the 1700's dredging for oysters has been a time-honored tradition in the Chesapeake Bay. In 1865, a law was passed in Maryland allowing only sail-powered vessels to dredge for oysters. At that time, the watermen adapted their crabbing skiffs and created the sleek V-bottomed "skipjack". A typical skipjack, such as the Nancy, measures around 45 feet long. Anchor Bay replicas are crafted from the finest resin materials, hand-painted and comes complete with its own history and with a wooden base and mirrored clear display case.
6 1/2 inches long, 3 1/2 inches wide, and 4 3/4 inches tall. The polished wood base is 9 1/2 inches long and 6 inches wide.
Cold cast resin model boat comes with wood display base and glass and mirror case. Retired Numbered limited edition of 4000.
