Program Description:

The 8th event in the 500 Years of Maritime Florida speaker series, this talk focuses on the evolution of the Florida-style trawler. During the early 20th century, a new type of boat was born in Northeast Florida. Forged from Greek, Italian, Norwegian, African-American, and native Florida hands, the Florida-style trawler became one of the most important boats in the history of the state. This presentation brings together stories, pictures, and the people from the halcyon days of catching shrimp and building boats in the Sunshine State.
