Built in 1902 in Salisbury, Maryland, the Stanley Norman, is a single-masted, Bay-built sailing vessel designed to harvest oysters with a pair of dredges that are dragged across the bottom of the Bay. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation acquired the Stanley Norman to play a unique and active role as CBF's most distinctive "floating classroom." The skipjack is a part of Bay history and an excellent platform for students of all ages to learn about oysters, the life of a Chesapeake Bay waterman, and Bay-related issues of the past, present, and future.
