Artist's Description

I once spent 3 weeks as a trainee deckhand on a Lowestoft trawler. That was 34 years ago, yet I still remember it with mixed feelings. When I trained at the college to swim with a life jacket and fix nets, they told me the best person to be nice to was the cook.We laughed in innocence.The day I joined the boat,the cook slapped his hands on my hips and said I’d accommodate him. I was so shocked I smoked my entire ration of cigarettes on the first day out. Then I realised that trawlers don’t have duty free….after 3 weeks, the cook was beginning to look good. I still think back fondly to those days whenever I see a fishing boat

Trawler in the Solway Firth of the southern Scottish coast of Dumfries & Galloway.
