HISTORY

The Botter is an old Dutch type fishing vessel with a flat or slightly V-shaped plane with a net protruding keel and angled horizons which pass into convex outwardly extending sides, whose boeisel above the mountain timber to invade (collapse).

Botters fished mainly on the former Zuiderzee , but were also used for inshore fishing in the North Sea. The type originated in the 2nd half of the 18th century.
Crew

In the original use in the fishing crew consisted of 2 to 4 people, depending on the fishing method . These were designated as master and servant (s), which also was the basis of social classification in many fishing communities.

In the present recreational use is the crew at races often to 6-8 people, to smooth maneuvers and sail changes throughout time. Many fishing boats are also rented to passengers, usually with a skipper and a servant. The number of passengers is limited to 12 because of legal restrictions

Botter Preservation

After the closure of the Zuiderzee, there are virtually no new fishing boats built. Wood and sail rig were repressed by iron and engines. Today there are still dozens of fishing boats by sailing enthusiasts in the region. They are united in the Botter Preservation Society . Within the association for the restoration and maintenance of the ships seek to maximize originality in construction methods and materials.
