Typical 18th century farm vessel, with straight outwardly protruding sterns. Flat bottom clinker built with strongly projecting edges and a buoy that is vertical along the sides, but is in line with the bottom edge at the bow and stern. Common size: 8.5 x 2.8m. The vessel can be rowed as well as sailed. It appears that the vessel was mainly used for the transport of milkers and milk between pastures, farms and settlements. It is said that this type of craft, which disappeared in the early twentieth century, has existed for about three hundred years.
