Disabled shrimp boats still true to a Lowcountry way of life

Lady Essie and Dianie deserve better. From across a sea of marsh grass on Hilton Head Island, the two old shrimp trawlers appear to be resting on their sides. One was being used to pull the other out of Jarvis Creek, perhaps for one last hurrah on the big water. But they didn’t make it. They ran aground in the tight creek. And now a familiar cry goes up to clean up the mess, but we know it will be easier to find a sneaker knee deep in pluff mud. [email protected] 09:00
