    With it's wide beam and little freeboard, you'd definitely need a self draining deck area for lobster fishing. I'd guess the upper strake (side of he boat) is an oblong board when straightened out.

    The Breton language is a lot like Welsh.

    In Welsh "Pen" is "head"" and "du" is black. I think I remember reading that Tabarly senior named his boat with the Breton name for the bird.
