Oystering Under Sail -- photo 8

Back at the dock, the oyster buyer's truck was waiting. The oysters were shoveled into a bushel measure and counted into the truck. We didn't reach the boat's limit of 125 bushels that day; I think we got 107. What do you expect from green crew? Wade collected for the oysters and paid his crew. The boat gets a share and then crew and captain share alike.
