Cobles in the harbour, Amble (2)
The two boats nearer the camera are cobles (pronounced 'cobbles'). These are clinker-built open fishing boats unique to the north east coast of England. Characteristics include shallow draft for landing and launching from beaches, twin keels, high bow to cope with heavy seas and launching into surf, a steeply raked transom, and a tarpaulin shelter instead of a cabin. Originally, cobles were sailed (with a simple squaresail rig) but most are now motorised.
