    Default Cuban Yawl Boat

    I don't know if that's what this boat is but it is from Cuba and is currently on "dry dock" and looked interesting enough to post here. It is on the property of the Crane Hammock in Marathon in the Florida Keys. It is about 14 feet long.

    sorry - if I take a vertical pic on my phone it always falls over. Interesting foredeck planking pattern.

    I quite like the look of her, not a lightweight though.

    What a beautiful boat that is. I find the old practical boats some of the most appealing.

    Interesting. Why is it called a yawl boat?
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Not a yawl in the sense of sail plan but as in the small sturdy boats used to push bigger boats - like the windjammers.
    Here's an example:

    I don't know that's what the boat I saw was - but it reminded me of that type of boat.
