Lettens Jan05/11/2010English Fishing Smack

The Smack was the type of fishing boat that brought home the fish to Market for most of the 19th Century, up to the Second World War .

The smack was usually ketch rigged, some had a topsail on the Mizzen mast , while others had a bowsprit carrying a jib.

These boats were very popular in Brixham, Grimsby and Lowestoft. Having sails in red ochre, they were a picturesque sight.
