Although it looks to me as if the man second from left is trying to pull the boat to shore, the title "Launching the Boat" is given by both Wikipedia and the Danish site https://skagenskunstmuseer.dk/en. (Yes, I know, Björck was Swedish.) I love this painting! It's got color, it's got texture, it's got manly men doing something manly!

nobody puts their back into it any more. I can remember helping my brothers push start their old jalopies

Ah, yes, so you can. Still looks odd to me, though.

you can see where the keel has drug a line thru the sand left foreground

I can see where they would be pushing as opposed to pulling. this illustrates the old saying "put your back into it!"
