Dhau - Depending on the size, Building a Dhau means between 1 and 1,5 years work in progress. There is no written plan, the owner of the last shipyard building a Dhau in Oman, told me. It is all in his head and the plan is inherited from generation to generation. They are building a Dhau without any nail, just using wooden bolts and ropes. In ancient times they built bigger Dhaus for sailing across the ocean till India and China. Now they are building smaller ones mostly for tourist shipping and fishing. This Dhau will go to Katar when the work is done. #oman #arabia #getlostinmyworld #letsgerlost #travelgram #travelphotography #travelblogger #travel #traveling #traveler #reise #reisereise #reisen #voyage #voyager #roam #roaming #dhau #sur #craftmanship #craftmanshipmatters #ship #schiff #werft #shipyard
