Sketches

These sketches are part of a compilation of drawings and images that I have gathered with the intent to illustrate what we know about Portuguese Indiamen. The ships and ship parts represented below span several centuries and encompass several different shipbuilding traditions and are just a tentative effort to provide an idea of the complexity and diversity of possible solutions for the questions we are presently trying to answer.
