Depicted here in the sunlight, the mighty St. Lawrence was the only ship-of-the-line ever launched on the Great Lakes. More powerful than HMS Victory, she made only two cruises with her British squadron, never fired at an enemy, was housed over and left to rot at anchor with the end of the War of 1812 and disarmament that followed.
Dealers of nautical antiques and collectibles, marine art, lamps, lighting, ship salvage and hardware, Skipjack sells quality nautical furniture and furnishings, marine instruments, model boats, nautical gifts and decor.

We're just a short distance from Virginia Beach, Colonial Williamsburg and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and just across the river from downtown Norfolk.
