Africa Boat building Harbour Morocco

Boat Building down in Essaouira, Morocco.

This place has an incredible history linking back to prehistoric times. Check out the link to the History of Essaouira . Portuguese,French, English all had a shot at various times.

Great to see some of the old boat building skills still in use today. How long they will last is a good question. The mass of blue boats in the harbor is stunning with the bigger trawlers just a bit further down.

Check out the old technique’s used in the photos a bit further down below. The tools and the timbers used for years.
