To the Caribbean we go – specifically to Antigua. I recently came across a blog post by a company called Adventure Antigua which is touting its plans to have a traditional Carriacou sloop built for eco-tourism. Good move – this will be WAAAAYYYYYY cooler than the generic plastic things the company now sports. Carriacou sloops are traditional freight boats for the islands and should work well as passenger craft, a la the Windjammers in Maine and elsewhere. We’ll keep an eye out for pictures. Apparently, the builder has already harvested lumber in Grenada, and, unlike in most cases, is having trees planted in the area to replace them. Well done.
