A motley collection of names

Special attention should be directed to the names of the wee boats, showing individuality of thought by local fisherfolk!

Mmmmmm, rather cynical, these North Easterners!

I can only guess that he says to his wife, ""_Aaam gaan doon t' the boat in the mornin', mek az a flask an a sarnie Pet"

Hope you get up outa yon mud, the Tide is coming in in twenty minutes!!

Lovely crisp and sunny day with Autumn leaves all ower,

that used be upon the trees, making a leafy bower,

Now they lie upon the ground , just like an orange carpet

If Sarah cannot get out of the mud, perhaps we'll see the life boat!!

the one who's hull is designed to cut down spray is called - Seaspray!

the blue one is called Ebony!

the one that is clearly a boat is correctly called; The Boat

and the piece of fibergalss, slowly falling apart in the back is correctly called Seahog!

This last one may not float in water much longer by the looks of it Mike

Nice one - Jethro

Thank you Apostolos J. Doulias It is amazing how similar harbours and boats seem around the world, yet each maintain subtle differences, thank you for the chance to see some of your collection and good of you to call in and view mine

Happy times to you!
