How good is that!
Masts, and lines and blocks....
There was a beautiful Portuguese boat there, built in '37 that used to go over to NFLD to go cod fishing, she even had some of the traditional gear on her, stored in a dory like they would have used....
The Kruzenshtern, the largest sailing vessel in the world, I think, German built, the Russians got it as booty after WWII, amazingly huge, rather frighteningly so, all too easy to get hurt working that boat. And looking into the galleys? Go with the Portuguese ship for eats I'd say....though there was a smaller Turkish boat that won the food category hands down by the look of the galley.
Kruzenshtern's masts, riveted plate! The crew are aboard for 3 months, then a new crew arrives. We think they are trainees for the merchant marine.
Kruzenshtern again, note the cameras...mother Russia, with love.
This crazy band was playing all over the place. The Brazilian boat had music playing, then closed up the ship and sat on the stern quarter with a drum set, guitars and beer. Ahhh Brazil!
Tomorrow, a walk in the mountains.
Life is very good indeed.
Now I just need to make friends with a kind hearted sailor who owns an underutilized Laser.
