MOTOR-BOAT FOR LOBSTERS. Successful experiments are being made at Swanage in lobster fishing by motor-boat. With the skipper at the tiller and the chauffeur at the motor, the voyage of six miles out to the lobster- pots is quickly made. Then comes the order to stand by," and the bundle of corks which marks the basket beneath is drawn on board, and the lobsters are deftly removed from the pot" and placed in the bottom of the boat. The motor- boat may possibly play an important part in the Dorset lobster industry in the near future in spite of the verdict of conservative "old salts," for by bringing the fishing grounds out in the Channel so much nearer more can be caught and possibly the price of lobsters cheapened.
