Skiffs in the Orkneys are used for all the various forms of inshore fishing. They are light and seaworthy boats, with a lug-sail that can be lowered quickly in an emergency.
This boat was found by the marine artist, T. William Ward of Ealing but was presented to the maritime museum by Mrs Leslie Browne in memory of her husband, Cecil Browne, a lifelong citizen of Exeter and a founder member of ISCA.
