Spanish term or phrase:Navata
Here is an explanation of a "navata". Now all I need is the English equivalent...
De entre las tradiciones recuperadas, aunque sea de forma anécdotica y festiva, las navatas o transporte de troncos por los ríos, las navatas constituyen el sistema antiguo de transporte de los troncos de madera de las zonas productoras a las serrerías, situadas en las partes bajas de los valles.
Los troncos arrastrados desde el bosque hasta la orilla del río, se ataban con palos de sarga remojados y retorcidos formando una especie de balsa con algunos remos delante y detrás para conducir la navata río abajo. Los conductores de las navatas son los navateros.
* Log or lumber rafts: Secured platforms of logs or lumber originally propelled by water currents and controlled by long sweeps. At Lake Pepin, some rafts were moved with crude sails or by cordelling. Rafts were later moved by steamboats. The rafts provided means to transport their component parts to markets, mills, etc.
Millions of logs were floated beyond Eau Claire to the mouth of the Chippewa at Beef Slough where they were formed into rafts and brails and floated or towed to sawmill centers along the Mississippi River.
