Seamen painting a jolly boat
Signed and dated 'AdVprGB July 74' (to the life by Gabriel Bray) this shows two men working on a jolly boat (the smallest boat warships generally carried), which has been propped up on its starboard gunwale for convenience. Many of the Navy's boats were built at Deal in Kent, where it had a boatyard for the purpose and where Bray is thought to have come from. Since this is clearly a shore scene and Bray appears to have been in Kent at this time (see PAJ1983), that may be the location.
