Geocache Description:


A construção naval nos Açores terá tido início nos primórdios do povoamento.

Ao longo dos séculos a freguesia de Santo Amaro manteve-se por tradição como o principal estaleiro naval do arquipélago, uma das razões pelo qual aqui se implementou poderá ter a ver com a abundância e acesso fácil a madeira de grande qualidade nesta ilha.

Neste local pelas mãos dos hábeis mestres nasceram de disformes e retorcidas peças de madeira, elegantes botes, lanchas e traineiras, algumas bastante conhecidas e que ainda se encontram no activo, como por exemplo, os atuneiros da Frota Azul.

 A construção em madeira decaiu muito nos últimos anos, uma das razões é a construção em fibra de vidro, e a outra é a protecção ao cedro do mato, restando apenas pequenas reparações em algumas embarcações de madeira.

A cache encontra-se junto ao porto e ao Museu da Construção Naval, e contém apenas o logbook.

Naval construction in the Azores it started in the early days of the settlement.

Over the centuries the parish of Santo Amaro kept by tradition as the main shipyard of the archipelago, one reason for which was implemented here may have to do with the abundance and easy access to high quality wood on this island.

In this place by the hands of skilled masters born from deformed and twisted pieces of wood, elegant boats, speedboats and fishing boats, some well known and which are still in active, such as tuna boats Blue Fleet.

The wood construction declined in recent years, one reason is the construction in fiberglass, and the other is to protect the cedar bush, leaving only some small repairs to wooden boats.

The cache is located near the harbor and the Museum of Naval Construction and contains only the logbook.
