38 :: A Gaspé Longliner

Each region along the St. Lawrence has its own fishing boats. This one, from Edmond Lecouvie’s birthplace, must have a retractable bowsprit to make docking easier. It is also provided with a mizzenmast, called a jigger.

 

From this craftsman, this is a tribute to his father and to the village of his youth. For us, this is a spot in the great history of sailing told by the 42 ivory sculptures.
