A Conversation on Ferry and Party Boats

A conversation about the fascinating local ferry boats, like the “Spica” and party boats, like the “Miss Carrabelle” that served Carrabelle for years.  Sometimes feature professional historians and other times are fortunate to feature local citizens with first hand knowledge of the Forgotten Coast’s fascinating maritime heritage. This special event will feature tales and reminiscences from local people, like Raymond Williams, Bevin Putnal and Micky Gay, who were captains, deckhands and children on board the area’s beloved ferry boats and slightly infamous party boats.We encourage those with memories or family stories and tales of their own to come and share in this conversation and bring your pictures. Don’t miss the boat!
