At the turn of the century every beach, river or port around Britain had its own style of boat. Maybe it was only some small characteristics that distinguished it from its neighbour, but there were differences by which the fishermen could tell their boats apart. Within a single fishing community there would also be the variations by which one builder's boats could be told from another's.
Although the curious stern of this boat, which is thought to assist with launching and beaching, marks it immediately from boats of the East coast or the West, the curves and method of construction will indicate one particular builder.
