A Dutch ferry boat before a breeze
A variety of shipping is shown on a blustery day off the Dutch coast. On the left is a fishing pink with a red sail, with several sailors occupied in putting up a second sail. An armed merchant vessel (a fluyt) flying the Dutch flag can be seen in the distance on the left. In the foreground in the centre of the painting is a kaag or ferry boat with a red sail, flying the Dutch flag at the mainmast and with passengers on board.
