Calabash Shrimp Boat Vignettes, part 3

The gnarly wood and rusty chains of this trawl board caught my eye on the Calabash boardwalk.  The 4 ft by 3 ft trawl board (or door), is used underwater on the left and right side of the shrimp net. At the right boat speed, the boards create enough drag to spread and maintain the horizontal net opening – where shrimp enter the net.
