A detailed survey and photography of the external and interior aspects of the preserved fisherman’s cottage at True’s Yard was carried out by West Norfolk Archaeological Society on the fishing smack (boat).

Working using the Nautical Archaeology Society proformas, the society recorded details of the smack, prior to its renovation.

They also completed a line drawing of the vessel, recording it from a number of angles using digital photography.
