I believe the artist is Jenny Morgan who I know quite well. She is a hugely talented painter and a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists. She actually worked on coasters and small sailing vessels, and her experience at sea shines through in her work.
In heavy fishing they seldom managed to clear the deck before hauling again Ally. They could have the bulk of 300-400 of Cod every haul and be hauling every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I've seen plenty of times us hauling when the ponds were still half full in heavy fishing.
