Need help identifying this

Is anyone familiar with the big plates attached to this boat. Picture was taken in Europe.

Yes both sides. Appears to be a fishing boat

Lee Boards. Same idea as a centerboard except there are two. One on each side.

Those are lee boards on a shallow draft dutch style boat. They perform the function of a keel or centerboard in terms of keeping the boat from being blown to the lee, but without adding significant draft.
One on each side to be deployed on the lee side when sailing.

Examples here, but they have been used all over the world, in China more than a thousand years ago.

LeeBoards.com where our goal is to educate the public about the value of leeboards and its history.

The great part of lee boards is that their shape can be optimized for lift , a center line keel or center board can not be.

They also have skid plates , so operating in shallow water they simply swing up.

On a flat bottomed shallow draft boat the work far better at displaying current depth information than a 22 inch screen depth sounder.

We had the good fortune to sail on a Thames barge in 2011 at the Harwich Shanty Festival, Essex UK.

You can see the shantyman have their feet on the lee board.

Actually Richard, starboard I believe, is derived from steering oar, which was placed amidships when swinging into a dock or port (hence the port side). Of course I am usually wrong in these things

Greetings,
Mr. d2. Correct. A steering oar or steering BOARD was traditionally affixed to the right side of the boat as I understand it.



Lee boards



Lee majors...



Farah Fawcett Majors...




Water faucet (major)

This is a photo I took this September of a Dutch barge liveaboard on the Seine River in Paris. The boat is moored opposeite the bottom of the Isle de Cite, the island Notre Dame cathedral is on. The bottom of the island is opposite the boat. The big building on the far shore is the Louvre.

We first saw this boat in 2001 and it has been in the same place since then. It is beautifully maintained. The city allows liveaboards to park their cars on the quay next to their boats. Whoever lives on this boat has a very expensive car based on what we saw in 2001. Didn't see a car this time, but given the condition of the boat I expect the owner is very wealthy.

You can see the starboard leeboard in its retracted position. The port leeboard is the same.

The boats moored along the Seine are moored using long standoffs, pipes that can pivot up and down at each end. Some of them incorporate big springs in one or both ends. This allows the boats to ride the sometimes huge boat and power barge wakes on the river without damage against the quay.
