On the day of her launching after her re-build at St. Osyth. A Howard smack built by him in Maldon at the navigable head of the River Blackwater, Essex in 1889. A Class III smack 33' on deck. This shot shows (or it would if the friends got out of the way) her well rounded forefoot typical of Howard and the sweet run aft so typical of all smacks.
