FISHING BOATS OF CORNWALL
Fishing Boats Of Cornwall.
This book looks at the development of Cornish Fishing Boats from the Lugger to Pilchard Seine-Net Boats,once as prolific as the Luggers and usually built locally. These are discussed alongside more unusual boats such as the St Ives “Jumbo” and the Mevagissey “Tosher”.
It also encompasses Cornwall’s once thriving “free trade” and its relevance to the proud tourist attraction Cornwall is today.Bringing the story of fishing in Cornwall up to date,this book includes photographs of existing boats gathered at the bi-annual Looe Lugger Regatta as well as a wealth of photographs and sketches of some of the earlier designs.
