Local Working Boats

A hundred years ago in the run up to World War One, the creeks and villages of the Solent would have been alive with small fishing boats. These days it's nice to see a few small commercial fishing boats still working. Below this Portsmouth registered boat is pulled up on the foreshore at Emsworth.

Below Jo a Southampton registered boat is well turned out seen here on a mooring down by Hamble quay.I don't know what these boats fish for but it's nice to see that our local fishery is looking to be economically workable even at a small level.
