History


Features


Working boats on Lake Isgithyr include wide-beamed clinker-built, sprit-rigged working boats and smaller flat-bottomed "cots" and "flats". Barges, here called "lighters", were used to transport goods. Log boats were the main means of transport.

Eel fishing has been a major industry in Lake Isgithyr. These eels make their way from the Serpent Sea. They remain there for some ten to fifteen years, maturing, before returning to the Sea to spawn.
