Photographer's Note

The cobles of the North East are markedly different from the small coastal fishing boats of anywhere else in Britain. This is most noticeable in the keel arrangement - single in the bows, double in the stern. The coble is also the only beach boat with a rudder that projects well below the bottom of the boat.

These boats are launched down the beach bows first, as most are, but returns to the beach stern first. The deep bow and the double keel aft both help to keep the boat straight as it goes through the surf and as it returns.
