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…

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.
