Boat Building in South Sulawesi, 2012

Three big boats, up to 45m long, were being built at Bira, but for a variety of reasons, they were close together,
covered, bad lighting, I couldn't get a good photo of the boats on the beach.

This big hull had a its keel plated with galanised steel, 2012

This boat was being fitted out in Bira harbour. There were two of them, both the same.

At Tanah Beru the boats were smaller but more accessible for photographs, 2013

This boat still has the wooden pegs fastening the planking sticking out.

Compare this with building of wooden fishing boats in UK, c.1974
