COVER: Able to battle the winter gales that sweep down on the coast, or to sit out on drying shoals, these Dutch fishing craft are much at home in their wild world of sand and broken water, and each is home to her people. This trade under sail ended fifty years ago as powered vessels took over, but some botters still sail as yachts, and a Netherlands Maritime Trust has now been set up to keep such historic craft in life. Painting by Henry Ranger.
