This boat below is called a Dead Rise.   It is the most common boat used by the watermen in this area.  They use them for crabbing, oyster and mussel harvesting and fishing   The watermen have these crab shanty’s out on each of their docks.  It is this man’s workplace where he harvests the soft shells crabs, and processes his other catches.  They get to these docks that are built out in the surrounding water areas by rowing or in smaller boats.
