    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    There is a choice of two, thanks to migration of the owners and crew.

    She's got good lines…. My old sea scout troop did something similar with an old double ended Norwegian built wooden lifeboat. Stubbier, clumsier, but similar fit out.

    That's one heck of a boarding ladder to have to store inside that boat.

    Typical Mediterranean pleasure boat, derived from work boats.

    I'd have one in a shot... great seaworthy capable strong boats, and a lot of fun.

    Lots of locales evolved a boat that looks like that.

    But I'm wondering... if I visited the Upper Peninsula... maybe on some island... could I get a ride in one?

    Which lateens are remarkably clumsy rigs...
    Having sailed a felucca just enough to know
    Rigged for a Sunfish, they're not so bad, but much larger than that and tacking (if the hull is up to it) is a pita
    and dangerous

    The Mediterranean is crawling with Gozos like that, from Malta eastwards. Although the Malta Gozos were two masted.
    Italian fishermen bought them to Frisco when they emigrated.

    No, Peter did not build flare into his topsides. His boat was more like a Scottish MFV.

    SF Feluccas did not have engines, and they had hatch combings and hatch-covers over the entire deck
    The man at the helm would stand aft in a wee hatch opening, then a little bridge deck and removable hatch-covers right up to the mast and another forward of the mast partner



    I have sailed this one...
    note the mast rake
    The "Monterey boat" behind it was the evolution with a tiny house over the large single cylinder engine
