The Knox Lobster Boat is the Standard Boat

Atlantic Fisherman magazine advertisement for the Knox Lobster Boat, built in Camden by Camden Anchor-Rockland Machine Co. The company built both the boat and the engine. The boat was sold for use as a lobster boat and for hand trawling. Small engines had been available to fishermen starting in the early years of the 20th century; by 1907 they were common, and boats were being adapted for them. This advertisement is from page 2 of the July 1921 issue, the first year that the Atlantic Fisherman, the nation's first fisherman's magazine, was published.
