The shipyard

We have a small shipyard in the city, mainly dedicated to fishermen boats maintenance and repairs. Fishermen boats are carvel build wooden caiques. These double ended small boats are equipped with a mono cylinder often air-cooled and noisy motor. Here you can see some “usta” maintaining boats, the last pictures show a brand new one recently delivered and waiting the last equipments before to leave for fishing. The crowd of curious “usta” and friends look appreciative at the shiny wood while the owner shows proudly the yet immaculate mechanics.

Such small boats (often only 5 to 8 meters long and without any cabin) can cruise for hours with their 8 HP propeller to bring us fresh mullet, seabass or leerfish.
