The boat is built using only wood and even the pulleys are manual....this boat is built by people living in the Mandvi are newr Bhuj, India. These boats can travel seas which can cover areas between Africa and India. They generally travel in the Arabian Sea. The boats are made from the strong Sal wood, procured from Gujarat and other states. The construction starts from bottom up, starting with a frame to support the shape the boat would take. An average boat that is about 50 feet high and more than 200 feet long and will carry 50 to 1000 tonnes of cargo can take from 9 months to a year and a half to be built.
