It is each of the vertical sides that result from dividing the ship in a vertical plane down the middle. A ship has two sides, the starboard side on the right side and the port side on the left side.

Before forming the stern of the boat, it is usual that the width of our boat narrows, these would be the fins. They are the part just aft of the stern of the boat. We have two, as well as the bulwarks, the starboard and port.

It is the line that imaginary divides our boat in two parts. We trace it from stern to bow, dividing the boat in half, on the right side we would have starboard and on the left side port.

What is the living work of a boat

Royal Decree 544/2007, of April 27, 2007, which regulates the flagging and registration of recreational vessels in the seventh list of the Register of Registration of Ships, was a first attempt to simplify the requirements for registering a boat. Experience since then has shown that there was room for improvement.

In this sense, the present royal decree differentiates the boats with CE marking from those without it and, in the case of the former, those of length equal to or less than 12 meters, for which the registration requirements are very basic. It also allows, also, the possibility of pre-registration of the boats, which means a significant saving of time when registering them.

By virtue thereof, at the proposal of the Minister of Development, with the prior approval of the Minister of the Presidency, in agreement with the Council of State and after deliberation of the Council of Ministers at its meeting on November 5, 2010.

The purpose of this Royal Decree is to establish the procedure for the flagging and registration of pleasure craft in the sixth and seventh lists of the Register of registration of ships, referred to in Article 4.1 of Royal Decree 1027/1989 of 28 July, which regulates the flagging, registration of ships and maritime registry.

If the speed increases, the boat begins to glide and the hull rises little by little above the surface, as there is less surface friction and braking, the speed increases until it reaches what is known as planing.

Also horizontally and just below the bilge, you will recognize hull ridges called redans, which run longitudinally and symmetrically along the hull and are developed to raise the boat for planing and less resistance. And they help in turning the boat at high speed.

Taking a standard as an example to understand the 2 concepts, the hull of a boat with a soft or deep V has an angle between 20º to 25º in the central part of the boat and is reduced to 5º in the transom part.

And in the case of the hull of a boat with a very pronounced V, you find an angle of 25º that reduces very smoothly to 15º or 20º at the stern. The advantage of this structure is the way it breaks the waves while maintaining speed.
