Painting No. 135
Hearts of Oak was launched in 1912. She was the last boat built at the Canal Foot boatyards near Ulverston, by John Randall McLester for local fisherman and “over the sands Guide” Peter Butler. She is a 6 ton, gaff rigged cutter, 33ft overall, with a beam of 10ft 6 inches and draught of 4ft 6inches.
This class of fishing boat, a Morecambe Bay prawner - affectionately known as a “Nobby”, was built to sail quickly through the tidal waters of the Bay, and to sit on the mud at low tide.
She was renovated in 2007 with Heritage Lottery funding, is based at Roa Island and is managed and sailed in the Irish Sea by The Hearts of Oak Boat Trust.
