Back in February, Nereo Zane began sending us photos of a pupparin being built at the GSVVM.
In the frenzy of travel and reflecting of Vogalonga, I neglected to post up these images. While at the GSVVM, I couldn't wait to get a look for myself. I met Luigino, watched him work for a bit, and took a crack at photographing the boat myself. I've witnessed a lot of boats being built over the years, but seeing this one firsthand was especially cool.
Looking down the centerline of the vessel, you can see just a hint of asymmetry.
A buso takes shape in the starboard rail.Nereo just informed me that he has a new load of fresh photos of our favorite pupparin-under-construction. As they should arrive shortly, I knew that I'd better put these up before they're irrelevant. The next series of images should be much better - because nobody photos this boat better than Nereo.
