This term applies to two types of coastal or estuarine craft used (notably for salmon netting) in coastal and estuarine contexts in Eastern Scotland. The heavier-built is of North-East English origin, and is distinguished by an undercut transom intended for beaching in surf. The type found further North is of lighter construction and has a vertical transom stern. Both types may be rowed or sailed, and are traditionally clinker-built, but are nowadays formed in fibreglass.
