    I like the composition of this picture, as many of the 'Phillips" collection. Whoever took these pictures had a very artistic eye. I do not think this is a "rowing boat" - there are no rowlocks and it looks too heavy and substantial, unlike the lighter vessel behind. An educated guess - that looks like Millers Point in the left distant background; so this could be at Blues Point or Lavender Bay ?

    Yeah, it's more of a drift boat. It's got that funny keel...

    I also got caught by the composition. The boat's listing to the side draws your eye in and across to the distant Bay. Nice photo...

    The dinghys would be on the Waverton side of Berry Bay where BP was located, below Larkin Street.
