    If the second one is Irish it is a pucun, not a hooker
    The others are trawling smacks, one cutter-rigged the other ketch-rigged, both using beam trawls.
    The Manx boat should have a standing lug mizzen to be a Manx lugger, They were used for the herring, so that trawl head on the counter is also an anomaly.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Pucan

    Note that the luff and head form a straight line.
    Hookers

    Manx lugger, a nobby


    A trawling smack


    Scottish lugger, a herring drifter. A Zulu rather than a Fifer
