A little history:
Lobstermen are often described as a breed apart - a profession filled with long hours of back-breaking and hazardous work, demanding great skill and courage.
They thrive on their way of life despite the long house and unpredictable weather.
The lobster boat is designed to meet the demands of the sea and its many jobs.
This boat drops baited pots to the seabed to catch lobster and crab. The posts are marked with long poles / flags on top to aid identification, which the crew return to periodically and haul up to check what they have caught
