The Shetland Fourern Ann LK 126 of 1871

Nominally rowing four oars, the fourern was a versatile type found throughout much of Shetland from the 17th until 20th century. It was used in fisheries and known for good rowing qualities. Construction materials varied, larch, whitewood, fir; good driftwood was never cast aside in treeless Shetland.
This Shetland Fourern was named Ann LK 126. It was built in 1871 at Scalloway, Shetland Islands, for use from the island of South Havra. 

 
A description and plans of the fourern are given in the book by Basil Grenhill, Julian Mannering, "Inshore Craft, Traditional Working Vessels of the British Isles", Chatham Publishing, London 1997, ISBN 1861760299.
