Two Old Girls

Daily Image - 11 March 2012 - Two Old Girls

The inshore lobster fishery is a harsh, inglorious, hands-on, traditional business. These two battered old girls may have seen better days, but they are still pressed into service and do their bit. Built as plank-on-frame, wooden boats, they’ve been sheathed in fibreglass to eek out a couple more years of service. They were found, basking in the spring sunshine beside the Comeauville wharf in Clare, Digby County, Nova Scotia.
