Boat Types [duchas:4864497]

There are many different kinds of boat. People fish on the Suir in cots. A cot is a small boat. In a cot there are three seats, one little seat and two big ones. The little seat is called a "Cuitíní". They pull the cot up the river and they fish down. 

There are also other boats called ships. Ships carry people across the sea to foreign lands. A ship is a very big boat.
