Making Boards
Richard

To make more useful sizes of boards from the big pieces of timber that are delivered, workers take a chainsaw to the timber to cut boards from it. Getting a long cut, straight enough to be used for making a board, requires a lot of practice.

Note the complete lack of eye and foot protection. No one I saw wore eye protection in the boatyards, and the only workers not wearing flip-flops are the ones in bare feet.

Unloading Lumber

Unloading lumber off a truck to where I believe a boat will be built. The stakes in the water keep the wood from floating away. Note how thick some of the lumber is. I'll explain why tomorrow.

It would be very cool to get pictures of craftsmen at work and their tools and methods.

Schooners under construction. I counted a total of 39 schooners under construction in Cajaíba, plus several other wooden boats.

39 seems like a lot of boats. Where are these boats being used? cargo, tourism, ..... ?
Cajaíba Church

Located almost across the street from the ferry dock (I hope there is not some history about everyone feeling the need to pray before getting on a ferry here), is the town church.
