Thung Chai Boats

My reading group read about thug chai which are Vietnamese fishing boats. I have written instruction on how they are made.

1.Cutting long poles of bamboo
2.Cut scrapes of outer skin
Slice poles into thin slats
4.Soak the slats in water
5.Weave it
6.Get thinker pieces of bamboo to hold the weaving together.
7.Put resin on the thung chai to make it stop from rotting in the sun and salty water.
