Description

Model (scale 1:8). Brighton hog-boats, or hoggies, were the ordinary offshore decked fishing boats of the South Coast between Eastbourne and Shoreham during the 18th and 19th centuries. By 1830, two-masted luggers, smaller undecked boats, were in use for the inshore fisheries and in later years this rig was adopted for the decked offshore boats. Despite this the luggers of Newhaven, Eastbourne and Hastings always retained in their short wide hulls a considerable resemblance to the older hog-boats.
