Doryman would probably approve of this little dinghy left on the foreshore outside La Trinite sur Mer, but undoubtedly well cared for and used.

Mala is a flat bottomed as they come, traditionally build with thick planks and a generous rocker to the bottom.

Apart from the straight stem she has the look of  Atkin's cabin Boy tender, My guess is that she's a stable and with minimal draft an ideal craft for getting ashore in the shallows where the tidal range can be 5 meters.

  1. A salty little vessel - not much time spent on fancy paint. ;-)
    She's well adapted to all forms of propulsion. Despite (or even because of) her workboat appearance, she's an attractive tender. You know me well, Max.
