Billing Boats FD10 Yawl
The fishing yawl was built during the late 1930’s in the Faroe Islands. Actually the boat is not a typical Faroe’s vessel although it was very popular in that area. As a matter of fact it is English. FD 10 is equipped with an English cutter rigging. The English sold this type to the Faroese, Icelanders and Norwegians as well as to fishermen of West Jutland. They wanted to sell as they were changing over to using Trawl. This boat was equipped to handle ’dry taking’ which means that the fish was prepared for salting on board. In all probability the yawl was built of pinewood on oak frames, but most original English boats were made of lime wood and elm. These were extremely strong materials for wooden boats, but they are very difficult to come by nowadays.
