Appears to be some current flowing there, must be tidal?

Well, that's a sweet boat! Gulf Coast, I'm guessing. Any more info?

They still use rakes to gather quahogs on Narragansett bay.

Their boats, however, wouldn't pass Woodenboat muster... they're usually boats like Carolina Skiffs, on which, a crude home-made tiny pilothouse is built.

Those guys are tonging oysters, not quahogs. I remember the clamming skiffs in East Greenwich Cove from when I was a kid. They used to have a pulley system to bring them back to shore from a pole stuck in the mud. Most of them were flat-bottom sharpies, painted gray. Utilitarian boats. Another thing that I remember was the town dump at the head of the cove, probably built on wetlands, that had a fire burning continually. Different times.

They still have such a system in Sag Harbor Cove, though instead of gray sharpies, its gleaming fiberglass Chris-Crafts, Sea Rays, and Grady-Whites. Here's a pic snatched from the web--not the best--but you can see the pole-n-pulley moorings in the foreground.
