The 23-year-old cray fisherman Peter Banks with his brother Barry and father Ron haul crayfish pots aboard along the reef-bound coast 130 km north of Perth. Peter Banks, in the foreground, had obtained his coxswain's ticket immediately after leaving school at 16 and built his own 11-metre boat.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
