Talking to the folk that have re-built Dad's MFV Fairy Queen into a sail boat they said that this hull design is known as a “half Zulu” due to her being rigged like Zulus built at that time (1926)The hull is more like a giant Lochfyne Skiff. At 44ft she is a good bit larger than the traditional skiff which ranged from 22-25ft.
