Boat nails are widely used for wooden boat construction. Standard boat nails like these are often used to face-nail floors. We don’t know if the reason these cut nails are called “Boat Nails" is because the hot-dip galvanized versions are popular in wooden boat construction. Or, another possible reason is that unlike a regular cut nail these nails have a swelling in the middle, like a canoe, which gets buried in the wood and gives additional strength against pullout.
