The trawl boards are made from plastic sheet and painted to look rusty.
Their purpose is to be dragged behind the boat in the net line, their shape causing the port and starboard net lines to fan apart spreading the net
At this point I have also started to add rust around the boat.
During the build the trawl boards or rather information about how they are rigged became a challenge, future posts will reveal more
