Welcome to

leeboards are great fun

Commercially built boats with leeboards include:

Aak, Boeir, Boeier, Botter, Hengst, Hoogaars, Punter, Lemmeraak, Schouw, Schokker, and Tjotter brand.

They were notorious unseaworthy when running with the wind. The low and unprotected aft made them very vulnerable to incoming waves.

Disclaimer: Always wear life preservers, drink and party responsibly, sail at your own risk, and please pass the word that leeboard sailing is now a blast from the past that will soon be in the news as being the latest sailing craze.
