Pioneer at Sea
Originally built on the River Colne in 1864, the deep-sea smack Pioneer was once part of the largest dredging fleet around British shores. From the Rivers Colne and Blackwater in Essex, it sailed the seas around the British Isles and northern Europe for oysters and scallops. In 1998, Pioneer was carefully rescued from the mud in West Mersea, where she had lain for over fifty years. From there she was transported to Great Totham, where, over the next three years, she was totally restored. Several of the craftsmen who worked on her were the descendants of those who had built or sailed on her years before.

Pioneer In Frame
At his first visit to the Pioneer, Dodds was greeted by one of the shipwrights asking “d’you wanna job, Jamie?”.  He was very tempted as it would have been a very rare opportunity to work on the restoration of a wooden ship of this scale.  He involved himself by documenting the project with a series of linocuts. The joy for Dodds in working alongside the shipwrights was that it strengthened the connection between Dodds the shipwright and Dodds the artist.

Winkle Brig or Bumkin
