Merge?[edit]

It seems to me that the Curragh and the Coracle are similar enough for the articles to be merged. User:Dumbo1

Disagree - similar, but not the same thing. Rgds - Trident13 21:07, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Diagree - I suspect it is Currach that is proposed for the merge but they are different and dreserve to be treated separately. Velela 04:15, 11 November 2006 (UTC)


Definitely not! The Curragh is seagoing,and rowed with two oars per man; the Corwg is used in Fresh Waters and sculled, with one oar, one man! Both are ancient, highly adapted crafts, and each deserves its own listing.User:sionnyn

Similar craft[edit]

Zodiac??? Is there another, hidden meaning to "Zodiac" other than the semi-rigid inflatable outboard engine boats? Unless so, this is a nonsense entry to the list. --Himbeerkuchen (talk) 12:22, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

There are saucer-shaped fishing skiffs, usually powered with an electric outboard motor, that resemble coracles. There are several commercial manufacturers and an article describing them here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2654414/Pivot-cast-unbelievable-ease-Saucer-shaped-boat-touted-ultimate-fishing-vessel.html. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.137.245.208 (talk) 13:53, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

This doesn't make any sense[edit]

Each river has its own design, tailored to the flow of the river.

Please tell me how this sentence makes any sence what-so-ever? Tonkatracker (talk) 16:53, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

For each of the major Rivers in Wales there is a design of Coracle unique to that river.  Velela  Velela Talk   21:31, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

I have edited this to make it clearer and more meaningful --Raffele (talk) 22:20, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Channel crossing[edit]

I added another reference (BBC, seems more reliable than the one that was already there) to § Today for the 1974 Channel crossing. Then I copied the whole paragraph into English Channel, § By boat and noted it on the Talk page there. --Thnidu (talk) 07:03, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
