Spartina Overview

Spartina is a fifty fishing foot boat sitting in family man Dick Pierce’s backyard; a testament to Pierce’s woes it lies unfinished and a reminder that if he could just find that last bit of cash they could be on the sea fishing for crabs together. Pierce’s struggles to continue the New England finishing traditions he was raised with are further exacerbated by his own bad temper and the isolation created by his need for independence.
