As the fishing and oystering business has dried up along the Forgotten Coast, so has the need for new boats. Former apprentices have given up the trade to take work elsewhere.


Fortunately, John P. Lasater, IV, was able to track down two boatbuilders and spent a week's residency painting the work and faces of the boatbuilders still plying their craft in the area, including Luther Hatfield of Eastpoint and Fred Buskins of Port St. Joe.


Please visit the Eastpoint Visitor's Center to view these works highlighting one of the Forgotten Coast's disappearing legacies.
