Having a moderately successful business and two grown up children, Fiona thought her life was fairly settled. She was unprepared for the impact that her husband's purchase of an old fishing boat would have. Shemaron: A Beautiful Endeavour is the story of her growing involvement on a practical and historical level whilst dealing with the inevitable frustrations of renovating an old boat. The turbulent and intimate interaction between fishermen and the sea is often considered alongside personal observations made from the deck of the ring net boat Shemaron. Poetical prose and historical interludes are woven into accounts of voyages undertaken whilst she and her husband have enjoyed guardianship of this historical boat.
