Boats of Pilar, Camotes island


This boat is resting on a bamboo platform. This is to prevent the belly to be continuously submerged in the water and gather moss. This is also my first time to see this kind of approach  of the boats’ protection from growing greenish-blue sea moss on the belly which slightly diminish  its speed. It also stained the underbelly and sides of the boat making it dirty and murky to look at. They just slide the boat from the bamboo platform when it is ready to sail.
