10.2.11 ~ 275/365

03 Oct

I attended a boat launching today of a very unique vessel, created and built by a local Portuguese boat builder, and modeled after boats that he helped his father build when he was a young boy living in Portugal. It is similar to a big gondola, and as a tribute to his roots, the words “Orei Da Ria” are engraved on the bow, translating to “King of the Bay”

A better shot of the entire boat so you can see it’s shape:
