This boat stood out among the fishing fleet in Looe, she seems to have the distinctive lines of a coble from the North East coast

The pronounced tumble home seems to start at mid ships and extends right back to the stern.

This picture doesn't show very well, but the transom, or rather what's left of it after fitting that hefty outboard and well is raked as are most cobles. The bows having a fine and concave entry.

A quick google of fishing records show Winifred is registered at Looe 5.7 meters and hull material fiberglass, there isn't much information other than she is not registered for shellfish or scallops. No clue as to how she came to be fishing in Cornwall nor her history or origin.
