Escape Cover

This one is a single masted ocean-going corbita. Ocean-going corbitas were sail powered with just the two steering oars although many of the Mediterranean corbitas used both oarsmen and sail power. Corbitas can be seen in mosaics and carvings that have survived the centuries since the fall of the Eastern & Western Roman Empires. To see an example of corbitas in mosaic click here and to see a much older example of a corbita in Marble relief carved around 200 CE found at Carthage click here.
