Brixham Trawler

This painting became well known when it was used by the RNLI for the November picture in their Calendar titled ``Nigel Reed`s working boats``.
First built in Brixham the trawler is a type of wooden deep-sea fishing vessel. In the 19th century it was known for its high speed. The design was copied by boat builders around Britain and some were sold to fishermen in other countries on the North Sea.

Brixham once had a fleet of 400 such vessels whose distinctive red sails were coated with local red ochre for protection. Only five remain afloat.
The painting was one of 12 featured in the RNLI calendar called Nigel Reed`s Working Boats
