The principal drawing depicts Mosan locals tending to their riverboats and laying ropes out. The vessels appear to be equipped with pulleys to draw in fishing nets. A similar boat is depicted above, its mast and rigging continued on the folio opposite (Tate D19607; Turner Bequest CCXVI 28a). With the sketchbook turned in accordance with the foliation, Turner has made a cursory sketch of a group of women, inscribing one of the figure’s dresses with ‘Red’.
