Hastings’ fishing fleet is moored on the beach. There are winches to pull the boats on shore and a light weight infrastructure of huts to store the equipment that is not distributed on the beach. The screen shot below (from Google Maps) Shows the arrangement in plan, with everything arranged either side of the winch lines. At Hastings the boats are protected by a breakwater, but at Dungeness there is no large scale infrastructure to protect the fleet other than the shape of the coastline.
