Re: Why would they do this?
Leeboards were very uncommon in ships of any era or commercial vessels except in very specific regional typeforms, such as the Dutch Jachts shown.
Actually, the second pic is a drawing of a Ted Brewer design, Centennial
From his website:
CENTENNIAL Centerboard or leeboards, flush decked, gaff rigged 34' sharpie ketch. Cored FRP hull and deck. OB power in well. 4 berths and good sitting headroom. An unusual yacht that will appeal to the unconventional yachtsman. Fast, able and a center of attention in any port.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
