The drawing is continued on folio 5 verso opposite (D03990). Like the study on Tate D03978 (Turner Bequest LXVII 5) in the companion On a Lee Shore (1) sketchbook, this is connected with the oil painting Fishermen upon a Lee-Shore, in Squally Weather, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1802 (Southampton Art Gallery);1 a slighter sketch of the same boat is on folio 7 of the present book (D03992).
