Down in Italy, Peter Radclyffe is making progress on a gozzo, as these photos show. Thanks Peter, and good luck with project!
I don’t know anything about these fishing boats, but the Italian Wikipedia has this page in Italian and this link shows what the boats look like when completed.
Just from these images it’s Peter’s an able boatbuilder, but readers might be interested to see this Clovelly picarooner he built some time ago.
