I like, very interesting boat! Thanks for sharing, Elios

Florentine Vermeiren on July 6, 2010

Thanks for visiting Elios ! This boat was probably the last one who was build since the river port of Mananara is completely silted and blocks the acces to the Indian Ocean.

Greetings, indri

This is beautiful! Very nice perspective and interesting. My first thought went to Noah's Ark too! Amazing, isn't it?


Florentine Vermeiren on September 21, 2010

Hi Jean ! Sorry for the late answer, I'm just back from a 3 week holiday in ... yep, in Madagascar !

I'm glad to see that you share the thoughts of "great minds" who also saw this boat as Noah's Ark :-)

Greetings, indri

Absolut uimitor! Like

Deze boten werden helemaal met de hand gemaakt, zonder dat er enige blauwdruk of geschreven instructies aan te pas kwamen, gewoon volgens de oude traditie waarbij de vakman het plan in zijn hoofd had.

Bedankt voor Like Popa!
