Jenkins Creek Crab Scrape Geda
17'6" Χ 6' Χ 2'2"
Crab scraping involves pulling a scrape or dredge across the shallow waters of Tangier Sound, scooping up crabs hiding in the grasses. Geda scraped up crabs until 1959, when sold to a Patuxent River fisherman. She was subsequently acquired by Dr. and Mrs. Kent Mountford, who restored the boat.
