Dead Tree Hole

"As told to me by Jimmy "WooWoo" Harker many years ago, "Shack was actually once covered in trees. Then they cut a clearing from one side of the island to the other to carry supplies from one side to the other. If boats had some sort of ballast onboard they would dump it before they got too shallow so they could pull right onto the beach and unload cargo. All that stuff they dumped formed sort of an artificial reef. Fishermen would then use the clearing to line themselves up to the hard bottom and fish around the area. No trees=dead trees, thus the name Dead Tree Hole."
