Indigineous sailing vessels.

Here are a couple of pics off Madagascar of a few boats made by the locals taken by Hans a Wharram sailor.

Nice. (at least to look at - not so sure about working on them!).

Re: Indigineous sailing vessels.

Nice pics off Madagascar! How far off shore will these typically go? I assume they are fishing boats. I understand the waters around Madagascar can get pretty nasty!

Can I add these Patagonian cargo boats to the mix?

I snapped these pics from Hal Roth's Two Against the Horn. To quote,
" The little ships were all single masted cargo carriers from twenty eight to forty five feet in length that were sailed in protected waters in sight of land. The black-tarred hulls had a beam of 50% of overall length, sharply flaring topsides, long keels and almost flat bottoms which enabled them to be easily run aground and lie at shallow angles when the tide was out... The wooden hulls were carvel planked with "cipres" which was copper fastened. Roundbeach stones made up the ballast. The anchor ropes were braided from a tough local vine called pet a; the parrell hoops around the mast to hold the hand sewn canvas sails were formed of circlets of a native vine called quilineja. The work boats had no engines... cooking took place on deck over a large three legged black iron pan in which a wood fire was kindled.

Re: Indigineous sailing vessels.

SIB named after the book "Small Is Beautiful" by EF Schumacher and built by Jim Brown and Dick Newick featured constant camber hulls, stayless rigs, and lashings on the crossbeams and was intended to free third-world fishermen from dependency on gasoline powered outboards. Little off topic but worth mentioning I think.
