Around Gabariers (Correze)


Gabariers are people who work on gabares, which are flat-bottomed boats with sails and oars that are used for river transportation. Gabariers can be the captains of gabares, sailors, or laborers. Gabariers have played an important role in the history of river transportation. They have been used to transport goods and people on rivers throughout France, Europe, and the world. Gabariers were strong and courageous men and women. They had to be able to work hard and endure difficult conditions. They also had to be able to navigate often dangerous rivers. The use of gabares declined in the 20th century with the advent of railroads and roads.
