Coble fishing boat from NE

The coble is a type of open traditional fishing boat with a lug sail which developed on the North East coast of England. Its flat bottom allowed launching from and landing upon shallow sandy beaches. Fishermen required high bows to sail in the dangerous North Sea and in particular to launch into the surf and to land on the beaches. The design contains relics of Norse influence. though in the main it shows Dutch origin.

It was one of 12 featured in the RNLI calendar called Nigel Reed`s Working Boats
