Somewhere within the last three years I have read about the use of leather-skinned coastal craft by the Irish. The book had a reference to reasonably large sailing craft of this kind in use up to late 1700s and possibly the 1800s. I remember there was a contemporary engraving of what was supposed to have been the last one in use.
Look for 'curragh' -- p.a.
