A sea of wood



Asociación Galega de Carpintería de Ribeira



The construction of wooden boats in Galicia is a craft activity with a high ecological value, imbued of the most popular detailed knowledge, not only as part of the maritime and cultural heritage, but also we understand that we have to do an effort to recover the full productive and commercial sense for this activity.

To achieve this, it’s necessary to begin the appropriate mechanisms to correct the defects that, alarmingly, are supposing a brake for a sector that, on the other hand, is being shown as a revitalizing element for the exploitation of the economic resources and , consequently, for the creation of wealth.

With the technique of laminated wood we can eliminate the traditional caulking, improve the designs without limits of forms, strengthen the resistance of the boat and above all and reduce notably the maintenance to achieve an excellent finish.
