Thanks to Ruth from the blog VazahaGasy for picking up my last post on her partner’s building of a traditional Malagasy fishing boat. She updated her pictures to include a few of the boat under sail.
As I suspected would be the case,the boat carries a loose-footed lateen rig. Really,I would have accepted nothing less! Seriously,this fits the boat well –I bet she looks nice under sail –and shows how that rig made its way down the coast of Africa.
Rath also gives us a good shot of the owner / builder. Great work! The boat is lovely. It is a work boat,but you can tell was well finished nonetheless. Enjoy!
