Very nice, thank you for posting.

How did they find the material to build those boats - I didn't see a single tree in the photos (didn't search the entire library though)...

Before the steamers from Aberdeen the boats were imported from Bergen, often disassembled as flat packs. The Shetland Islanders learned boat-building from reassembling these kits, and then learned how to modify the boats to better suit their waters.

Very nice! It's remarkable how little boats have changed.

Beautiful boats, and I was interested in the small boat with a dipping lug. Was she single handed? She looks very Scandinavian. It also looked like a very tough place to make a living.

I read somewhere that the reason the Shetland Islanders imported boat kits from Norway was because they had built their boats in the past, but then ran out of local lumber.

In the Shetland tradition that is a square sail, the mast has shrouds and the sail is set forward of them, which is not the way you set a dipping lug. The square sail boats will have needed a second or perhaps a third hand. The helmsman to control the boat, one on the halyard and one for the tack and bowline.

The only timber that the Shetland Islanders ever had was driftwood from the Atlantic. They were of Norwegian decent, so just continued to send home for their needs.
