The Felucca. Common bay fishing boat in the San Francisco Bay Area. Italian design brought by immigrants. Used sail and oar power alone. ink drawing by Carol-Lois Haywood, based on historic picture.

I once did a series of artworks–based on various fishing boat types, as they came and went in this vicinity. For illustrating a booklet about the history of northern California fishing techniques over recorded time. I wanted to satisfy my curiosity about how the amazing variety of contemporary boat types I saw came about.
