Boat Building

 

Though the tools utilized in the edifice of dhonis have varied, little has changed of its basic pattern. As in the past, the boats are still being made without a documented plan. The blueprint and symmetry of the boat egresses as the boat is being built!

Imported hardwoods are utilized in the place of coconut wood, which was used in the past to make the hull. Rivets made up of copper are used to hold the boards together instead of fibre, which was utilized for the purpose even half a century ago. The canvass built of coconut foliages gave way to a three-sided lateen sail. Even though this is still believed necessity and is carried on board, it is utilized only during exigencies or to ease strive of the engines. Almost all Dhonis are driven by diesel power. Dhonis are primarily used for angling and render the livelihood for a large ratio of the population. Others are changed to be used for conveyance of passengers.
