This is a photo of the famous TideRunner, a boat that once belonged to Emmett Paul who was a well-known Beaufort shrimper in the 1990s. The Tiderunner has been stuck in the marsh for years, and was made famous when it was featured in the movie the Prince of Tides. You can see the boat from the highway going into Hunting Island State Park.

Where can I get a print of this photo, Tide Runner, in St Helena?

All SC Picture Project photos are owned by the photographers. I would suggest attempting to get in touch with Dr. Paxton in Aiken. Best of luck! It is a great photo!
