    That's quite a rakish look to this vessel, looks like she was built to be fast.  Is it some type of fishing vessel?  The sail arrangement is kind of unusual too.         Curious as to what those two horizontal wood bars on the sides are for.  I also noticed the split wood logs on the floor.  Hope they aren't for making a campfire on board! :rolleyes:

     Looks to be well deserving of the gold.

Thank you all for your kind words.

You're right about the shape of the hull...She used to be a fast trade coastal vessel of the Northeast Aegean sea,  transporting any kind of goods. Her rigging is the typical  sacoleva shape.
Those side wooden bars used to be placed so that side canvas can be set up, extending this way the side of the hull -protecting a deck cargo.
Thank you for your comment.
