A small sailing boat, the Sinagot takes its name from the small French port of Séné, near Vannes, in the gulf of Morbihan. From Vannes to the Bay of Quiberon, from Belle-Île to the Vilaine river, this boat was used all year round for coastal fishing, oyster fishing in the river Pénerf, in particular, and some coastal shipping until the start of the XXth century. Often in summer, fishermen and their families lived on board. The Sinagot is a decked rowboat with a shallow draft of 1.5m, a length of about 10 meters, and a beam of little more than 3 meters. Very sturdy at the pointed stern, it carries two self-supported masts made of a single piece, the foresail at the front and the main mast, which is larger, at the back. Two sails are rigged to a very high third and, occasionally, to a removable boom, jib or "studding sail". Remarkably suited to the sea, it runs quickly in the wind and can beach anywhere. It is recognizable from a distance thank to his 'junk' appearance and its ochre red sails , a color that comes from a mixture of tallow and crushed bark, used traditionally to tan them. The color of the sails varied from region to region and even from one port to another. The hull was always covered with a black tar coating (Coaltar).
