Well, let’s see. The vessel seems to be about eight feet in length excluding the bowsprit, maybe with a beam of a little over three feet. Now could the rudder be the famous Pendalion, the main source of canon law in the Eastern Church? I would design the rudder to be a little longer to be effective and to avoid broaching in a heavy swell.
The bowsprit looks authentic, and is used to get the jib well forward for a cutter-rigged vessel. The problem is that I am scratching my head wondering whether this is a simple basis of a cutter rig with the original mast down – or a four-masted barque with a cross-shaped capstan amidships! Now, where would they haul up the sails and yards if it is a barque?
The colours are nice above the waterline, those of the Italian flag, with blue below the waterline.
This might be a real fishing boat with a simple lug sail rig, and perhaps the bowsprit is used for the haul down the luff, to allow as much space aft as possible for fishing. The rudder looks “fishy” to me, as it looks as if it were cut out of a single piece of plywood for both the rudder and the tiller.
All that being said, the Mediterranean Sea can be a rough place for such a small boat. Even my gaff rigged sloop is a ten-footer, but this barque of Peter does have a decent amount of free board. I have celebrated Mass in many places, but not on my boat!
