This boat was a tartane of fluvial origin that was built in the Rhône2680A1ED-427E-4F7F-B087-77DCC0F5C2A8.jpeg6F1AB3E3-77C9-4F71-87AF-56EA0243BD0C.jpeg8F74186D-0363-43CA-817D-1D53E9545C12.jpeg5A5E3F55-398E-4724-8CC2-FBC97BF7FD90.jpegF4207EC4-4D35-4389-BAB4-A12E9CCBE711.jpegBF99FCCC-C185-4FD3-ABA8-3DD319E1BB68.jpeg335D0265-A80A-4169-A19F-64F99937AD0E.jpegBAD29E01-08D9-4343-8C3E-1736C98D6BB5.jpeg79D7AEB6-4A45-44BD-99EA-024A69B87EFE.jpeg region, near Condrieu, Beaucaire, Arlez and Martigues. Thanks to its low draft and its robustness, they became a fundamental element in the development of the region, creating a large fleet that had at the time of its heyday, in 1845, 125 boats, which were used both for transportation construction materials (wood, stone, aggregates) as well as the unloading of ships that could not pass at full load through the bars of the Rhone delta. At times, they also made maritime navigation through the Mediterranean, to Marseilles, Toulon and other towns in Languedoc, Roussillon and Provence. The appearance of the railway as a means of transport led to the disappearance of the "allèges" in the late 19th century.

Hola Javier,
I see that you have completed another wonderful model. How many have you completed? Would it be possible to take a photo of all of them together? Looking forward to your response.

Dios mio, Javier. They are beautiful. It seems you average a complete build once a month or every two months. I look forward to your next build. I know that it will be crafted in the same loving manner as your previous builds.
