A computer model of the Telen Mor

Telen Mor model

This is an online computer model of the magnificent Douarnenez fishing boat Telen Mor that you can move about and view from any angle – click on the image to get to it.

She’s what’s called a ‘chaloupe sardinière‘, which I’m pretty sure means her type would have hunted for sardines while they were still around. ‘Shaloupe’ of course is ‘sloop’, but even in English that word has various historical meanings.

Read more about her here and here – sorry about the French language here, but Google Translate may help…

My thanks to Pierre-Yves Decosse for posting this on his Facebook page!
