"On the Ways in Richmond"

Many boats are too large to be lifted from the water with cranes.  Some of these boats are lifted by marine ways which consist 
of a platform that rolls on railway tracks.  The boat drives onto the platform, is secured and then hauled ashore
by a winch.  The men in this painting are working on the propeller of a seiner named the Marilyn Jean (my wife's name).
