"Le Martegaou" was a flat-bottomed boat from Provence. Vessels of this type were commonly used along the Rhone River for transporting building timber, tiles from Arles and fodder.

The runs were eventually extended to include the southern coasts of France. The boats disappeared, however, as railway transport became widespread.

"Le Bayard" is a fishing vessel from F├ęcamp on the north coast of Normandy. Built around 1850.

At that time these boats were used for fishing off Newfoundland. The hulls were raw unvarnished wood and the sails were red-brown in color.

In 1878 these boats were replaced by lighter ones.
