Dutch flat bottom sailing barges Lemsteraken, starting in different harbors in Friesland and at the frisian coast of IJsselmeer :
The Frisian Lemsteraak type is a traditional sailing ship type with a flat bottom. The Lemsteraak is perfectly adapted to the requirements of shallow waters and flat coast, such as the Wadden Sea. The flattened keel of the Lemsteraak makes it possible to fall dry on wadden sea. For fishing on the Zuider Zee in 1876 at the shipyard in Lemmer, "De Boer" the first Lemmeraak, now called Lemsteraak was built, a fast cruiser and 10 to 15 m length. With it, the catched fish was taken over by the so-called herring dinghies and transported to markets.
