Informative photos. We visited along that coast in March this year. Didn't actually call in to that spot, unfortunately. A few of the places just north and south of there though. I think there are still some slight remnants of boat activity at Second Valley on the Fleurieu Peninsula too.

Great snaps showing the ingenuity of the early fisher folk when there was no "safe harbour" for their precious boats.

Second Valley has none anymore. It has all been cleared away. I do remember the tin boat sheds (about 1954 ) and the railway lines down to the water .The sheds had windlass's in them to wind in the boat trollies
