Dhow in RAK

Greetings..
this is a collection of my pictures during one of our trips to RAK , to check the Dhow if has been finished or not..
Probably it will take another year to finish,people are building it hand by hand,

and then it will goes to Somalia. Those people are spending around 3 to 4 years to finish building it ..God they are so patient!!!!
also ..we did see how they cut the trunk of the tree ad make it to layers so that they can use it in the dhow , the machine is old , but still working efficiently :)
it's really amazing to see the amount of work they do to finish building it Will leave you with the pictures for better explanation :) hope you like them :)
