History of this boat
A hundred years ago, the beautiful inland sea in the center of the Netherlands called "Zuiderzee" was used as a fishing area for botter and hoogaars built with robust frames and while oak sailed in deep coastal waters with their flat bottoms using lifting side daggerboards. Fishing was often kept alive in the large hold of the boat, which was originally open-air and occupied half the boat with a large livewell. The rugged, non-guyed, heavy-duty mast meant the helmsman had to use all his strength to stay on course when the wind was blowing. Formerly all these boats were rigged to livarde and were all regréé in cutter for ease of uses.
Location and time
These boats sailed between 1780 and 1820 in the region of Zuiderzee and the Ijsselmeer are still many today because they sailed most of the time in fresh or brackish water in which they trawled their trawls to fish Shrimp, Fish, but also many mussels and oysters in the coastal parts of saltier waters.
