Photos of Black Caribbean workboats
There are a couple of photographs of my ketch, Stillwater, cruising but the others are of Caribbean workboat designs.
The photographs are a sampling of the invisible maritime heritage that the Western Hemisphere has to offer us just for the scratchin of the cover. You might wonder why I have sailing photos in a forum that deals with diving and the answer is simple, not all diving is recreational nor with SCUBA equipment. To acquaint youth with the reality of the Miskito Indians or the Garifuna nor the Caymanians nor the Belizians is to deny a future interest for them and that interest could bring them into an acceptance of the water as a natural environment for our people. Every country that has black people as a population has us living alongside the sea in the Western Hemisphere.
