Between the "net shops", you will find some old fishing boats. They were once part of Hasting's fishing fleet, but are now pahsed out. Information plaques will tell you some facts about the different boats.

The boats belong to the fishermen's museum, which is located in the former St. Nicholas church. The church was built in 1852 but was not used anymore after WWII. In 1956, it became the fishermen's museum where you can see pictures and items related to the fishing industry in Hastings. Admission to the museum is free.

The boat you see on the right side of the picture, "Edward and Mary" from 1919, was the first fishing boat in Hastings to have an engine installed.
