And without sounding like an idiot, Im guessing it is a painting of an actual boat. I mean was there an actual boat called that and if so someone on here must know the history of said boat?

fred Yates was a well known artist who lived and worked down here in Cornwall for many years. When i lived in Mousehole, he regularly left his large paintings in my kitchen overnite, as he didnt drive and went everywhere by taxi. He was a very large man with great beard and was very well known down here and a regular sight. He went over to France to live for a number of years before returning to britain. He died a few years age to everyones great sadness as he was a very kind and unassuming character. His paintings now regularly fetch 10,000 +. Lovely to see another one.

Sounds like he was quite a character,wonder what the connection with the p20 from sunderland was?

he was from up north originally i think, he had a slight northern accent, he also did travel quite alot. i was looking to see if the background was St Ives / Penzance, bit i dont recognise any of that style of building. i will ask if anyone down here recalls where he was from.

MANCHESTER.Googled Fred Yates,loads came up about him,brother died at ARNHEM,remember the film,A BRIDGE TO FAR? Any of his paintings come up again would be worth snapping up seems they are very collectible,even more so now the poor bugar has croaked.
