Artist's Description

Panasonic FZ50 raw/manual settings

The lerret, which dates back to the start of the 17th century or before, originated as a fishing boat that could easily be launched from and beached on the steep and shingled Chesil Beach. It is a double-ended, flat floored, clinker built boat used for mackerel fishing and was so successful that similar designs were used as lifeboats.
The lerret was double ended because with a transom, the stern of the boat would be too low as it ran down the steep beach and into the water and the boat would be swamped.

‘Littlesea’ is a replica of the Lerret ~ a traditional Dorset fishing vessel ~ the original was built in 1923 .. this one was built at the local boat-building academy and launched at Lyme Regis in Dorset earlier this year.
