Dock End - a Memory of Whitby.
In the above picture, the two cobles in the background are Jean (right) and Valerie (the smaller one), and the one with a man on the foredeck is Enterprise WY.47 my Dad's coble, and that is Dad painting the foredeck. Enterprise was built as a open coble in Amble, Northumberland in 1947 and Dad had her half decked in Whitby by Will Clarkson who was a well known boat builder and whose yard was further up the river. The coble in the foreground next to Shippeys speedboat is Tom Pearts, Little Lady. I was eleven years old at this time. The Dock End is now only half the size and the jetty is now on the left hand side, as per this view.
