Bawleys off the Nore

Bawley’s off the Nore drawing by Frank Mason

This is the frontispiece from Vanishing Craft: British Coastal Craft in the Last Days of Sail by Frank G G Carr with drawings by Frank Mason.

Published in 1934, the book was written by Carr with the aim of persuading the yachtsmen, curators and scholars of the time to record and record the last small sailing working boats. I don’t know how influential it was, but it stands as a charming and informative piece of work.

  1. Dear Sir/Ms,

    I am trying to find out if there is a place called Bawley in Scotland. Google Earth provides no help. Can you?

    Thanks in anticipation.
