Hugh Cooper Year: 1973The Cromarty Salmon Fishing Boat
The Cromarty Salmon Fishing Boat summer 1973. Robert is manhandling the net alongside the boat while the Glasgow University students lend a hand.
Hugh Cooper in the forefront and Duncan Craig in the background. You can see the mid-ships engine housing that drove a propeller positioned above the keel allowing the boat to slip over the nets without fouling them.
