The Barbizon House record noted that:
‘There is a fine massive confusedness in this remarkable painting. The busy scene is filled with the movement of many strong figures, some occupied with the ephemeral passing of the fish-catch of the morning, while others are equally busy with the more permanent building of a good ship of the future.

The artist has aimed at producing a grand decorative scheme showing the scaffolding reaching to the ribs of the vessel and the active movement ofthe workers in full swing, each absorbed in his own labour.’
