Beatrice S.

A beam trawler. The Beatrice S. was named Best All-Around Boat at the Second Anniversary Ball of the Provincetown Fishermen’s Association in January 1939. The caption accompanying this 1937 picture by Edwin Rosskam says: “In the cabin of the Beatrice S., a beam-trawler which was one of a considerable fleet that fished out of Provincetown as late as ’37. Today there is a mere handful of these boats left. Their practice is at sea, wherever the water is shallow enough to allow the nets to drag until a catch is made, sometimes several days. This cabin is the living, dining, bedroom and kitchen.”
