This little boat will be very familiar to those who spend any time on Ireland's West coast - the Galway Hooker is enjoying something of a resurgence in popularity, with new boats now being constructed to the traditional plans. 

They are well suited to the shallow, and often heavy seas around Galway, originally used for fishing and transporting cargo, and able to be beached where necessary. 
The Galway Hooker is recognised by its distinctive red-brown sails and black pitch-covered hull. 
Length 12".
