Fertility

The Peterhead seiner/drifter "Fertility is pictured, rigged for the herring fishing, with her mizzen sail set, as she ploughs through choppy seas on her way to land a shot of the silver darlings. She was built in the mid-1950s and was owned by a partnership headed by James G Hay. The painting is 24 x 18 inches in size, and is in oils on hardboard. It was bought from the exhibition at the Creel Inn, Catterline, in early 2008
