16th Century galleon launch boats - hull painted or not?

Recommended Posts

It is time for me to start building the launch boat of my San Francisco galleon.  This made me wonder - in the late 16th century or early 17th century, was the hull of a galleon's launch boat painted white on the outside (as was more common in later periods), or wasn't it painted at all?




Current build : San Francisco II (AL)
