The blog

This blog shows most of the Brazilian boats & canoes known or used on the coastline or inland of the country. As a sailor my interest started with sailing canoes. Most of the construction of the canoes have Indigenous peoples origin, as well as  the culture from African slavery and Portuguese immigrants mainly from the Azores whilst the (sailing) boats have the influence from Dutch & French presence in Brazil during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Note: The blog content has no scientifical data and names are kept in Portuguese and texts in English to help foreigners.
