Beste leden, de site ziet er anders uit omdat we een ander thema in gebruik hebben genomen.
Building "La Primavela' - Small Boat Building Course - SAILCARGO INC.
Throughout March 2019 we had some very special visitors at the AstilleroVerde!
Master boat builder Bert van Baar came all the way from the Netherlands to lead a small-boat building course attended by local artisanal sustainable fishermen from the nearby fishing village of Costa de Pajaros, just across the water from the shipyard.
The result was 'La Primavela' a small wooden vessel suitable for low-impact fishing in the area. It was made entirely from wooden offcuts from the Ceiba build project.
The course was entirely funded by donations through our accredited non-profit Shipyard Association. We hope to run more courses like this in the future to support the local fishermen in their journey towards sustainable fishing practices. We're actively seeking funding to build the required infrastructure to deliver these courses - and more - to the highest possible quality in future. To donate any portion of the $12,000 needed, contact us today!
