Dr. Randolph O. George was moved by his passion for history and the majesty of the Chesapeake Bay to write Memoir of a Skipjack, a collection of photos and stories chronicling the history of oyster boats in the Bay. 

George set out to find and document all the skipjacks he could, and out of the 52 boats in the book, 41 are still floating, lovingly restored by a team of professionals.
