Just to any certain villages in the southwest of Viet Nam, the familiar image on the rivers, canals was the dinghy were people rowing, swimming to walking. For many generations now, to travel and do business, people in Mekong Delta
area used boat, but the dinghy featuring unique. Dwelt among the rivers, every family, though poor at least have a dinghy.
Dinghy exactly as its name implies. Assembled from three pieces of plywood a few inches long horizontal surface only. A piece horizontally as the bottom, eat two pieces slanted sides, known as the beige. Between the board connecting system that is fairly thick shackle.
Under the curved bar, boat builders who devised a concave semicircular cut called the “Lỗ Lù”. They have common tasks between bone mineral water together to help ease the water slaps, slaps do not bother each compartment. Nose and drive dinghy with no difference shapes, different sizes, if any, only in the plank.
Thanks to the nose and behide dinghy that flexibility in higher boat control. If as in the types of boats, other boats will need to go back to the nose as needed with a dinghy, it was just sitting swim inverted, nose turn into behide dinghy and vice versa. This feature is also one of the advantages of the dinghy, it is especially meaningful when used boats where the road is too narrow.
The tonnage of the dinghy is calculated by the size of the planks be. Popular as the passenger boat from about six to be be ten. Canoes can be measured lower the number of smaller, more lightweight, able to move higher, but low carrying capacity, suitable vehicles. Big boats can carry much, but moving slowly so often used to transport goods. Along with the process of finalizing the dinghy is the creation of tools and methods of control it as: crutches used against pole, beams used for swimming and finally rowing tree. Each one has its own use.
But even though the boat driver in any way, to balance the canoe capsized off or new lurched is the most important thing. To achieve the necessary balance is both an art and only art that is formed through a process of training. Currently, the majority of people in the region, because life has improved so has been the ignition shopping instead of beams, rowing. However, although there were machines, but any public motor boats are also carrying beams, rowing to stay when machinery malfunctions that use.
Cause small, lightweight boat can be easily wriggle out of the narrow roads. Also, due to the contact surface area with small countries do to minimize resistance of water, it has the ability to move fast even in shallow. People use boats to travel as well as in labor and production. Singhy is used to visit the, nets, transporting the material mined in the forest, carrying the fruits of labor from the field, using boats to travel trade. More unique, boats are sometimes used as a house floating on the water, the warmth of the human spirit give shelter before the rainy impermanence of earth and sky sunny Southwest in Viet Nam.
