The Ida May Project                  

The Ida May

The Christeen Oyster Sloop Preservation Corporation is establishing a wooden boat building facility in Building J on the Western Waterfront of Oyster Bay and building a replica of the Ida May oyster dredge with volunteers under the professional guidance of a shipwright. The Ida May is historically significant as one of the first powered dredges in the oyster industry, and in Oyster Bay, where she spent her working life. Once completed, the boat will be owned and operated by the WaterFront Center, where she will take the public out on the water for recreation and marine and maritime education.
