The Essex Shipbuilding Museum took a group of students, from Topsfield Vocational Academy, that built the clamming skiff on a trip last Friday. They left from Conomo Point and rowed the clam skiff, with two of the museums fleet of Sharptown barges to two clam flats (Seal Bank and Town Nub), where the students learned how to clam with a fork and by hand. Their teacher Mark Webster and professional clammer and project partner Ian MacDougall, of Hermit Crab Industries, showed the students how to harvest the clams. When they had dug enough clams (soft-shell and razor), they had a clambake on the flats followed by a row back to Conomo Point. A great way to end a tremendous project, they built the boat and then put it to work.
