The yellow boat does have nice lines.

The things on the bottom of the wooden boat is a mystery. I would take it over to the wooden boat forum.

I think it would increase that chance. A significant stern sea would tend to hold dowd the stern so a wave could come aboard and poop the stern putting them in a very bad way. Perhaps the word “floundering” would apply. Seen quite a few pics of boats w “skirts” and I’m sure it’s an attempt to make a FD boat go faster. One from Spain has been marketed in the US.

Sometimes we really do get “interesting” boats .. thanks.

I can't really tell where those fittings are located from the photo. But I wonder if the "protuberances" may have once been the attachment points for bilge boards?

I reckon they could be the engine bearer bolt heads. I have four a side protruding from my ironbark bottom.

Yellow boat, maybe 80'? Just gorgeous with a protected prop, full keel. I'mglad it was wood or else I'd never be able to wrest my gaze away

The protrudances were out the bottom. I failed to check if they were equal in the other side but this was an old single screw. I like the bearer bolt idea - they seemed to be in a appropriate area

Guess - I think the skirts are to increase the waterline of a displacement boat and to provide more aft buoyancy as well as a larger hull to carry more fish.

Sort of like a swim platform, longer boat, can collect more taxes and no one wants to sleep on it over night.

Me-thinks it would act something like a wave piercing bow, in that the stern would get some early lift and some of the waves energy would spill off to either side of the stern, instead of all the energy hitting the stern square on.

Don't think them Icelandic guys would put a 'skirt' on their boat just to be fashionable.

Also...what Icelanders consider acceptable conditions would probably have most of us whimpering at the dock.

I believe Eagle got it right in post #4524, and others suggesting similar, that it is some sort of tie rod bolt end holding a main beam or component in place

It’s to reduce “squat” and extend the speed range of a FD boat.

A friend suggested it might be for the ice - to keep the bits out of the prop as it passes astern.

We talked about her sister ship in the spring post 4119. She didn't have a mast. There were 8 built as I recall. Another one was for sale this summer. Really like the look of them. Except no place to land a salmon.

It's a "Comfort 38". There was one for sale in Anacortes this summer, and another in Kodiak. ...just checked, don't see either on the market now.

As for the bustle shown look up a boat called Menorquin. Photos here:
https://www.google.ca/search?q=Menor...h=849&dpr=0.75

ABout 20 years ago they were being pushed on the east coast . Never saw one but lots of photos and write ups.. That bustle was a modification to the original hulls to get more speed from their mostly displacement hulls for fishing and commercial use.
It apparently did work. From the articles it also improved seakeeping.

In the pleasure boat market that bustle got expanded, a lot.
Then an economic downturn occurred and I never heard of them again untill now.

The bustle for commercial was much smaller than the pleasure boat versions.

Looks like the bustle was not only Spanish.
