Traditional yachts on display in the Hout Bay Harbour

I was once asked where all our traditional type craft have gone to? The fact is if we just open our eyes and have a look around they are everywhere.


Open the picture by clicking on it.

A local version of the Flicka 20, moulded here once upon a time, we can supply the hull shapes in MDF if you should want to build your own?

Yacht Flee is the Flicka and is dwarfed by yacht Tara, a South African carvel planked traditional yacht.

The camera I used is the Canon G1X, taken at ISO100 film speed I am finding out this gives better colour than at a higher speed.
