Artist's Description

The jib of the old couta boat crane stands out against the dawn sky, now on land, at Point Grey at Lorne as a reminder of one of the boom industries that supported the coastal township for many years.
Lorne Pier was home, by the 1960’s, to a barracouta fishing fleet purported to be Victoria’s largest, 28 at it’s peak. Couta boats had a distinctive style, sailing with a gaff rig and featuring a spacious cockpit allowing hooked fish to be pulled in quickly over the stern. Boats were kept on the deck of the pier and launched and retrieved using this crane, when it was on rails on the original pier before the upgrade.
