Welcome aboard,

Enjoy the forums--contribute where you can and ask questions where you have them.

What sort of boat is Tanjera?

Default Popeye's Tanjera

Popeye's Tanjera is a Kelsall design and was built in Durban South Africa. Since then she has been updated a number of times.
PS The name change to Popeye's Tanjera is almost legal.

Default Tanjera's origen

The name Tanjera is from an old Arabian folklore about a sauce pan known as a Tanjera. The story goes.....

An Arabian man lent his travelar friend a sauce pan and after many months his friend returned the sauce pan with a smaler sauce pan ... the exact duplicate. When he left he took the lager sauce pan with him once more.

When the friend did not return after many months the man thought ... Oh well ... the bigger sauce pan probably died as he did not return .. he did leave his youngster!

The traveling salesman was later found robbed and barely alive. The sauce pan, the Tanjera, was later bought by Popeye at an Arabian market on one of his many travels.

And so ... SV Popeye'sTanjera was born.

Regards James!
