Schooner Dalia

17 August 2009 | Ilha Grande, RJ, Brazil
Richard
The beautiful 18m (56 foot) schooner Dalia was built in Brazil, as a replica of a Gloucester Fishing schooner. The hull is a very hard and rot-restant Brazilian wood called ipê, the deck, house and spars are a lighter Brazilian wood called freijó.

We had a pleasant visit with Dalia's friendly owner/builders George and Silvana, at their house, which Dalia is moored in front of.
