American Standard Version
and he saw two boats standing by the lake: but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
Young's Literal Translation
and he saw two boats standing beside the lake, and the fishers, having gone away from them, were washing the nets,
Luke 5:2 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Two ships - Δυο πλοια, Two vessels, It is highly improper to term these ships. They appear to have been only such small boats as are used to manage nets on flat smooth beaches: one end of the net is attached to the shore; the fishermen row out, and drop the net as they go, making a kind of semicircle from the shore; they return, and bring the rope attached to the other end with them, and then the net is hauled on shore; and, as it was sunk with weights to the bottom, and floated with corks at the top, all the fish in that compass were included, and drawn to shore.
