HZ2069 : Yoles old & new

taken 6 years ago, near to Stonybreck, Shetland Islands, Great Britain

Yoles old & new
Yoles old & new
A traditional Fair Isle boat or yoles. The boat-shaped noosts remain in use today as you can see from the new and old boats pulled up into the safety of their noosts away from ravages of the sea. However on the day I visited you could not imagine a rough sea, it was flat calm almost tropical like.
