We at Chine bLog try to be quick to point out other doing similar stuff online, especially if there is quality content. I therefore eagerly introduce any readers who haven’t found it themselves to the blog ARPEX, written by Peter Mirow out of Rio de Janeiro. Peter gives us too much credit for writing about the Jangadas from his native land. I, of course, grabbed the meat of that post from Bob Holtzman at Indigenous Boats, but I’ll take a finders fee’s worth of credit.
There is much to find at ARPEX. Peter is building a boat and has nicely detailed his project. He also shares our interest in outrigger canoes. This post in particular has a couple nice boats – I especially like the first. Welcome aboard, ARPEX!.
