    Default Sailing Workboat in Brazil

    My nephew sent me this video from his travels in Brazil, saying "thought you’d like this - they know how to handle their boats here in Brazil"

    If war is the answer........... it must be a profoundly stupid question

    Reef points are quite rare on Brazilian workboats for a variety of reasons. There's good information on traditional Brazilian boats in two books I have: Embarcações típicas da costa brasileira by João Lara Mesquita and Embarcações Típicas do Brasil / Typical Boats of Brazil by Ronaldo Graça Couto. The latter is written in Portuguese and English side by side whereas the former is Portuguese text only. Great pictures in both and drawings in the latter, unfortunately, the drawings show nothing below the waterline.
