Author David Berry, a writer and longtime sailor, has spent many hours volunteering on the skipjack Martha Lewis. It's easy to get started - we will give you example code. He has selected images that capture the simple, elegant functionality of these historic sailing vessels and remind readers that a key part of Maryland s past is disappearing. Numerous efforts are in place to save the remaining skipjacks and to reestablish the oyster in the Chesapeake Bay, but the days captured in these photographs are gone forever. The skipjack was the perfect vessel for sailing into the Chesapeake Bay's shallow waters and dredging for oysters, and each winter, hundreds of these wooden craft set out across the bay's cold waters. The oyster population of the 21st century is a fraction of what it once was, and the skipjacks have disappeared along with them. No longer economically viable, the boats have been left to rot in the marshes along the bay. Only 25 boats are still operational, and fewer than five still dredge.
