The two above books together contain an unique collection of photography of registered fishing boats of all sizes in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly forming a superb resource for the professional connected with the commercial fishing industry in the South West of England, and also a useful reference for those wishing to explore the coast in a different way.

The introductions contain some interesting snippets of information about some of the traditions in local fishing communities, together with some information on fishing methods and the development of the fishing industry in Devon & Cornwall.  This is followed by pictures of some fishing boats illustrating how the same boat can remarkably change its appearance followed by a consideration of each port in turn, clockwise round the coast, with notable facts and photography on each port and dated photographs and lists of the registered fishing boats found there.

Also in similar style to the above but with a longer introductory chapter about exploring the coast
