|Bermeo Port 2007/08/20 This conversion is being undertaken as a basic feature of training at the school of marine-carpentry. It consists in the conversion of a fishing-boat into a period Basque whaler (17th century) of 38 metres in length and 7 metres in beam. This vessel recovers the typical characteristics of a Basque whaler of the era as well as the tackle and gear used at the time in whale fishing and its transformation into fish oil.
