Summary - The song is about a fishing family hoping for good fishing.

Alec Smith mentions a book, Eyre-Todd, 'Scottish Poetry of the Eighteenth Century', which contains - as poems - many of the songs he knows. He talks about some of them. He notes that John Ewen of Montrose is given as author of 'The Boatie Rows' and jokingly asserts it is a Buckie song.
