Hans-Peter Brugger has and is crafting a phenominal website at Historic Tall Ship Replicas. This site is encyclopedic and contains photos, books and other documentation on historic replicas worldwide. Not limited strictly to tall ships, the site includes many many types of boats, as you can see from my sampling above. take a look for yourself, but be forewarned, this site is massive, takes awhile to load. Close other programs before loading. And a word on the French Lugger Corentin. The lines were drawn for this and other replicas by French Naval Architect Francois Vivier, who has this to say about her:
Quimper is the main historical city of western Brittany, located uptream of river Odet. It was an important harbour in the days of sail, but today the inhabitants have forgot this maritime past.An association decided in 1990 to build a replica of a lug sail coastal trader of the mid-19th century.
Fortunetaly several plans of that period were available and, with pictures of Quimper harbour, I have drawn one of the most typical lugger of that time.
Like La Belle Angèle, Corentin is operated by Gouelia.
the image of liki tiki is so full of potential. Step aboard and go it cries out!
