OLD FISHING BOATS

OLD FISHING BOATS

OLD FISHING BOATS are favourite subjects of mine. The boat on the left of the line is my old Hastings fishing boat, ‘the Fairlight Maid’, built in 1947 by Lower’s of Newhaven. She is still in Hastings with our friends Andy and Cherie, but is no longer seaworthy. At 16foot, she was one of the smallest fishing boats used in the time of sail, and was known as a ‘punt’.
