Yahtzee

Besides being a popular port-of-call for cruising sailors and charter boats, Bozburun is also a pretty impressive boat-building center. In the harbor, there were quite a few beautiful, wooden schooners and ketches and we suspect that most of them were built right here by local shipwrights and carpenters.

And they do it all, starting with sawing the raw lumber into framing and planks…

…bending the ribs and other framework…

…laying the keel and setting the ribbing…

…and planking the hull, laying the deck and building the doghouse.

Here’s a near-finished vessel, brightwork completed, having her hardware set and interior built out.

I lazed on shore, admiring the finished product.
