Bring back Folkboat Friday, says I. Oh no, says you. What say the rest of ye?
You can never overdo a folk boatSteve
I have a very good informative book about Folkboats - 'The Folkboat Story' by Dieter Loibner - tracks the Folkboat history rather well.Despite the fact that the later versions have more cruising accommodation I like the early classic Nordic lap strake planked version.There is a close cousin of the Folkboat that to my eyes is more aesthetically appealing called the 'Knarr' - also called an 'IF' boat - similar size - very beautiful.
