Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas depicts the beginning of a daily fishing trip with a gaff-rigged dory running before the breeze.  The artist has accurately captured the scene as the streamer flag atop the mast is pointing in the proper direction, and the jib is sheeted off the port side while the mainsail is sheeted to starboard.  The lee board on the port side is raised to reduce drag, as it is not needed on such a tack.  Sturdy working vessels such as this have plied the European coasts for centuries.  Survives in its original frame.

Circa early 1900s
