the power of Balener

The Balener was also known by a variety of names such as:
  • ·        Baleinier,
  • ·        Ballenero,
  • ·        Baleinier,
  • ·        Baleniera.
This ship is very similar to a brig, generally with two masts equipped with square rigged sails. Although there was a bit of variation depending on the individual vessels, this class of ship was typically in the 150 to 200 ton range.

In later years, when whaling became less popular, many of these ships took measure to deter governmental or private interference in their trade. It is difficult to see in the image on the left, but the ship actually has fake cannon holes painted on its hull to give the appearance that it was an armed vessel.

-knowledge is our honour-

Vessel is an advance technology that help us travel/doing our work. Vessel in my opinion is a transportation in water/sea that travel from one port/place to another port/place. To help those of you who may share my passion of ships & sails but may not have done much sailing of your own, I have taken this information from other web that compiled the list of ship to help you to understand the differences between different types of sailing vessels.  If you know of a type of sailing vessel I have missed, please take a moment to email me and let me know. Your knowledge and opinion is much appreciated..tQ
