Lets forget , for the moment, the sleek outlines of the modern steel monsters which sail our seas, and take a look at another type of craft. At first glance this boat is almost primitive in comparison, yet they have been evolved by trial and error, over many centuries and now embody the accumulated knowledge of many generations of Welsh fishermen. From earliest times man has depended on the sea and rivers for fish and as an easy means of travelling and transporting merchandise. One of the earliest forms of fishing boat in existing to-day , is the Welsh Coracle.
It's easily carried,, two coracles would work together , and a net would be slung between the two. This boat had been used by the ancient Britons long before the arrival of Julius Caesar who was struck by its potentialities and he recorded all details of its construction, which has altered little over the years. A light circular framework, and is covered with canvas and tarred to make waterproof.
