FAVORITE, And More…..



(Artwork courtesy Aldo Cherini)

What can I tell you about this?  Only what the translation says:

“Travel around the world of the corvette ‘Favorite’ 1830-1832”

Surely some of our astute readers can tell the story of FAVORITE?

I don’t know how I came across this website, but the artwork is, I think, amazing.



Apparently, it’s the work of Aldo Cherini of Italy.  In this part of his website are 299 drawings of a similar nature:  historical Indonesian watercraft.  And I’m afraid I don’t know who Aldo Cherini is…

More Indonesia

To view the 299 Indonesian drawings, click here:  www.cherini.eu/etnografia/IND/index.html

To go to his main website, click here:  www.webalice.it/cherini

What can you tell me about these?

Oh, and I will be in Europe for the next two weeks, so I am leaving you sadly bereft of My Wooden Boats of the Week until I return.  Liberation:  I am not bringing my computer with me.

Thanks, Carl

    I want to applaud you on your work. I myself have built and maintained websites and I fully understand the commitment. You have done a fantastic job ! Thank you so much for posting to the ‘Wooden Boat’ FaceBook page as that is where I became aware of your work. I will bookmark and reference your site many times in the future, as well I will link to it when appropriate for the sake of sharing with my sailing friends and interested acquaintances.

    Hello Carl,

    There’s information about an Aldo Cherini on Google. I think he’s your man.

    Amiral Pâris (1806-1893) was a french admiral, well known in France for his works about extra-european boats. Copies of his book ” Le voyage de la Corvette la Favorite, 1830-1831-1832″, with more than hundred water-colored sketches of exotic boats are presently disponible.
