I used postimage last time I posted pictures, no ladies looking for men then. . my pics came straight up in the post, no clicking a link. I may try it and see what happens However last week I uploaded some photos and notice one of these "advertisements" popped up.
Nothing has been bobbed off. Some boats like canoes and pirogues have had points added to their ends, but a chaland don't need all them fancy lines.
I actually don't know if it can be certified as an authentic chaland, but boat types and describtions are subjective. https://books.google.com/books?id=_...D3QQ6AEIXTAL#v=onepage&q=chaland boat&f=false
It is my effort to improve on the little punt I built. That little boat can work in certin cituations but not too well for my usage.
New to me also. At the Bayou Teche Boat Show a local attendee said my punt looked like a boat used for crossing the bayou and back again. Researching for more information about boats used for that purpose is when I found the name. Chaland boats have several descriptions, usually determined by their location and/or primary usage.
I don't expect it to replace my 14' pirogue but I hope the changes have improved it over the punt.
