Skipjacks by Dredge Number

The following is a list of current (and some past) skipjacks in order of their known dredge number. It includes those skipjacks featured on the Last Skipjacks Project website that have dredge numbers assigned, along with numbers of some of the boats that were lost before the Project began. Some skipjacks have never been commercial dredging vessels, do not have dredge numbers and so are not included on this list. A full list of boats featured on the Last Skipjacks Project website can be found HERE. Please contact the Last Skipjacks Project with any corrections or additions.

PLEASE NOTE: Prior to the 1960s, dredge numbers were not permanently assigned to boats. If you are trying to identify a skipjack in a photo from an earlier period by using its visible dredge number, this list may not be helpful. Also, some boats have changed numbers at some point since the 1960s. Where previous numbers are known, they are noted.
