The survival of late medieval Mediterranean techniques to conceive and build ships and boats in Brazil was noted by John Patrick Sarsfield in the 1980s, but his study of the Valença shipwrights was interrupted by his tragic death in 1990.  This paper is a contribution to the understanding of these shipbuilding techniques, which are still widely used in the region, from Valença to the Baía de Todos os Santos area.
