How to build a boat?
World's biggest handycraft.
Freshly finished boat against the sun.
Depending on their size, hand-made boat can cost between 20 000 - 30 000 USD.
Off the small dusty road lies the boat yard.
Building a boat
Nails are hammered through the boat walls with a peg. Later the peg is cut off to leave only a small piece of iron in the boat wall.
Although it was a Friday and a weekend for the craftsmen, they had heard about people coming to visit the boat yard.
They came to view the tourists as much as we were there to view their craft and climb on top of the unfinished boats.
