Just one more

I know I've probably done folk boats to death, but this one just looked fantastic in the evening sun.


  1. Bring back Folkboat Friday, says I. Oh no, says you. What say the rest of ye?

  2. You can never overdo a folk boat

  3. 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.
