Small inshore work/fishing boats, rowed and possibly with the fittings to set up a mast (for lug or gaff), but by the time the artist was working more likely also to have had outboard or inboard engines as well. They are drawn up on the beach at Sennen Cove, with the Round House and jetty behind. Two Penzance-registered boats are shown. The Round House, which originally housed the capstan, was converted into an art gallery and gift shop.
