This relates to a watercolour in Norwich Castle Museum of this title dated 1809. It was Cotman's exhibit at the Norwich Society in 1809 (see Miklos Rajnai and Marjorie Allthorpe-Guyton, John Sell Cotman - Early Drawings (1798-1812) in Norwich Castle Museum, 1979, no.82, ill. pl.52). Another version of this drawing, with colour notes, is also in Norwich Castle Museum (op. cit., no.81, ill. pl.51). Cotman drew a number of studies of fishing tackle and beached boats at this period which were probably executed at Cromer.
