The Felucca N.S. Del Rosario, towed the Gozzo Santa Caterina.
The bark that I propose to describe is a Gozzo of 1759, used as a
harbor or fishing vessel, carrying one mast with a « calcet » (mastcap),
a « berthelot » (bowsprit), a main lateen yard, and a foresail.
A typical Mediterranean vessel, it was very important along the
coasts of Liguria as well as the Riviera.
Documentation relating to this small vessel is rather sketchy. It consists
in some iconographic records and even fewer manuscript documents.
In spite of all this, we have collected sufficient documentation to
be able to put together a monograph that will enable you to build a
beautiful, accurate and detailed timber-frame model. Although historical documentation is rather sparse, graphical documentation
has been used to draw all the details of the framing and furniture.
Thus leaving you, I wish that you may construct, according to your own preferences, a model worthy of a museum.
