"50 Objects That Define Baltimore." Skipjacks. These revered, wind-powered fishing sloops, relied on by Chesapeake Bay oystermen for well over a century, symbolize life in Maryland waters as much as any blue crab; they were officially named the state boat of Maryland in 1985. Estimates had the skipjack fleet at the beginning of the 20th century at roughly 1,000. Today, thanks to the decimated bay oyster population and the preponderance of power boats, only a handful remain.
