The small, inshore lobster boat has a particular meaning. Some of that meaning is maritime and about the community, but the real meaning is deeper. That meaning is family.

This is the type of boat that we see work by a family. It may be a father and children. It may be brothers. It may be a father working hard to keep his truck paid for and the family fed. Whatever the combination or permutation, this boat represents family.

As an extension of the family, this boat extends into the community. This is the type that is at band concerts at the high school. They cheer on little league teams (and may sponsor them). They help provide food to the community. But chances are, the community is part of the family (by blood or association) too.
