Rockport’s Big Crab Returns, Even Bigger

A new weather-resistant fiberglass and aluminum crab by artist David Allgood was installed on August 25 in Rockport, replacing the 50s-era original, made from paper machĂ©, that finally succumbed to decades of subtropical gulf weather back in the 1970s. The new blue crab, located at the entrance to Rockport Beach Park, measures 27 x 25′, even larger than the original, and cost $11,000. The Guinness Book of Records has been alerted.
