In the boatyard


This week's theme for the Thursday Challenge :
WOODEN (Ship, House, Furniture, Carpentry Tools, Trees,...)

Fished out these pictures of boats. On our way back from the Somnath Temple we crossed this 'boatyard' (for want of a better word) where huge boats were under construction. The place I think was Valsad, Gujarat.




Love the tiny cabin like thing on the deck.




The men were using lanterns during the day





Got the chintus to stand here to get an idea of the size of the boats.
Aren't they just huge?.. the boats of course.

  1. A lot of hard word to get the boats seaworthy and you captured it beautifully.
