Researching the topic for Pat Nolan was a labour of love as it involved chatting with men who fished on those iconic vessels of another era. Previously, in 'Sea Change' Pat had written on the BIM 50-footer and its impact on coastal Ireland of the 1950s and '60s. The story of the BIM 56-footers naturally followed on from this.

The book contains details on each boat, and recollections of individuals who owned and/or fished on them. Part I is based on comments, observations, experiences and memories relevant to the 56-footers. Part II is made up of individually traced histories of all thirty-nine BIM 56-footers built.

Part III is made up of interesting lifetime maritime experiences of men Pat met on the way.
