A Seine Boat

For those unfamiliar with this type of fishing boat, this is a seiner like the ones described in “The Fishing Widow.” The top-most deck is the enclosed wheelhouse with a weatherdeck behind (aft). The large cabin below is the main cabin and the fo’c’sle, which comprises the crew’s sleep quarters, is forward and below that. The large boat on the stern of this seiner is a tender skiff, a usually 3-ton boat that is used for deploying the seine net.
