English: This category at present includes pictures of oared boats used in whaling, and of the type of rowboat developed for whaling, even if it was used for other purposes. Whaleboats as a type were used for both ship- and shore-based whaling and as ships' boats for purposes other than whaling. They were and are used for rowing races and as surf-boats. They were and are often equipped with sails and centerboards.
