Description
Sixty color slides. Images of Simmons demonstrating his wooden skiff in the Everglades. Simmons was one of the last makers of wooden Everglades skiffs, which were used to fish and hunt in the shallow wetlands of South Florida. A self described 'gladesman,' Simmons grew up near the Everglades hunting, boating, and fishing. His skiff measures 18-18 feet, and are 2 feet wide. They are flat bottomed and propelled with use of a pole by a driver standing up in the boat's middle. Simmons began building them at age 12. He is also the author of a book, 'Gladesmen' from 1998. For an interview of Simmons, see S 1576, T86-2 and T86-3 (C86-48).

Description
One contact sheet with twenty-four black and white images. Images of Shiver building an oyster skiff in his Eastpoint shop. Skiffs are small, light rowing or sailing boats. More images can be found in S 1577, v. 45. Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
