Aberdeen is a large, industrial port, dominated by rig supply vessels. We are moored in the fish dock, where we can observe the comings and goings of the trawlers and lobster boats - far fewer than there must have been even just 10 years ago. The bright colours of these workboats reminds me of my years growing up around the North East coast of England, places like Amble, Seahouses and Craster where the brightly coloured cobles showed a classic design shaped by the curve of a wave and years of, probably bitter, experience. I always wondered whether the bright colours make up in some way for the tough life and dangers associated with making your living in a small boat. Posted by Hello
