A fleet of East Indiamen

In the foreground an Indiaman is shown broadside, to port. It flies the red ensign from the stern as well as short pennants to indicate that it is a merchant ship. There is a figurehead of a golden carved lion on the bow and there are three stern lanterns. The deck is crowded with sailors involved in the process of tacking. The ship is either 'in stays' (hovering in the eye of the wind) or briefly hove to with her foresails shivering. On the left a similar East Indiaman is depicted in the foreground with three other merchant vessels in the middle distance.
