plank on frame construction
The Skipjack is the last working sailboat to ply American waters. These vessels possessed a highly raked mast and a large amount of sail area, giving them the power necessary to haul the dredging equipment used to collect oysters.
The Skipjack evolved from traditional, generally flat-bottomed bay crabbing skiffs, enlarged and given a V-shaped wooden hull. Meeting the need for an easily and inexpensively-constructed vessel, they often were built by house carpenters or by the watermen.
