Apparently the Stephensons are an old well established Boulmer family and Violets' name is on a memorial window in the local church but I couldn't find any dates for her.
The coble was built in the boat yard in Seahouses but I believe has been sold and is now based in Amble just up the road.She is no longer registered as she is now only used occaisionally for crab fishing.

i love the colours in your picture, they are very bright and appealing, and well saturated. the blue sky contrast very well with the yellows of the flags. great composition.

So this is dear old Violet Stephenson (BK124) again! And another fine capture you have of her surrounded by lobster pots (or are they crab pots?) and the owner busy at his work.
It was very nice that this man and his son were so agreeable to have their pictures taken - did you ask specifically first before taking pictures? I must say that I am always a bit reticent about doing that but I do find that if you ask, most people are quite agreeable. Probably better to ask first rather than just snap away without people's consent.
What an amazingly blue sky! And, as Brian says, it is in sharp contrast to the bright yellow of those flags.
