Launching a fishing boat

If you own a moderately sized wooden fishing boat you can carry out repairs and a repaint job on the quayside, in this case adjacent to the fish quay in Sunderland.

When the work is completed along comes the mobile crane and lifts the boat back into the water. It was quite a struggle getting this large vehicle onto the quayside, but once there it lifted two boats back into the water very quickly. That in the photos is the Sunderland registered Isabella, built from wood in 1988 with a gross registered weight of 9.63 tons.
